Birdwood Traverse #1


(personal photos)

I recently hiked Birdwood Traverse with my husband and friends. It is amazing that only 1 1/2 hours from city limits a backcountry experience can be had. This week I am sharing some of the photos we took on this wonderful hike. Over the course of the day we experienced a wide variety of terrain. Alpine meadows were in full bloom. We passed through the territory of a resident grizzly. Many signs of his activity could be seen (such as diggings, and fresh scat) but we did not see the alpine giant. However, a young male moose did greet us as we were parking our truck! I know photos can never quite do justice to actually being there but I hope you enjoy this vicarious trip 🙂
