Thursday, June 5
“Let’s go up the mountain!” I announce to the crew. Bridget and Spike jump out the door of the Best Little Trailer and wait expectantly at the side door of the Perfect Tow Vehicle. I toss them in and soon we leave camp and head up Badger Mountain.
“C’mon. We’ll take a walk here.”
The higher we go, the more snow, of course.
“There it is! There’s the meadow. Look at all the yellow flowers!”
We climb out of the PTV. I hurry ahead so I can take this next photo of the crew’s first look at the meadow since last June.
Tiny white flowers with a faint blush of purple-pink are interspersed with the yellow flowers. Hmm. . . I’ll have to look those up later. Gee, flowers everywhere!
(NOTE: It turns out that I still haven’t seen yellow columbine. Readers corrected me in the comment section. The yellow flowers are called glacier lilies or trout lilies. The tiny white flowers are spring beauties.)
The crew and I walk across the meadow.
The columbine (no, trout lilies or glacier lilies!) grow so thickly together that I watch my every step to avoid crushing them.
(NOTE: I’m told these flowers are marsh marigolds.)
Like someone else I know . . . .
“This looks like a good spot, Spike, if you don’t go in where it’s deep. Whatcha think?”
The three of us wander around the meadow for a while.
Satisfied I have the photos I need for the blog, I call the crew.
For Bridget, I holler, “C’mon, Bridgey Baby, time to go!” For Spike, I make come-along-now arm movements that he can see from across the meadow.
Together we head back to the PTV.
Once we’re in our seats, I turn around and face Spike and Bridget to tell them what’s next.
“I think we’ll go up to 10,000 feet. All the way up! To SNOW COUNTRY! Great plan, huh, guys? Won’t that be FUN?”
