Just another return trip to an easy rambling place to see color. My foot...damn thing is giving me trouble again...so I need something easy. Jim obliged me by joining me on this outing. We headed up to the Wind Farm on Whiskey Dick Mtn to check out the flowers and the windmills up there. After rambling about for a while, we headed over to Reecer Creek Road (north of Ellensburg) to see how high up we could get.

With all the heat lately it seemed like some of the flowers down low were wilting. High up, some color, but I've seen better years. We hit the usual early season snow on the road so it's time to head back down.

Just all in all...a really fun day to be out.
