CONC hikers got an extra treat on a Meetup hike to Canyon Creek Meadows on Tuesday, July 24.
Eleven hikers were led by Gary Kelley and Don Schwendiman. Gary describes the lupine as “outrageous.”
But there was more:
“The goats at the top are now the star attraction though,” Gary continues. “We saw 11 on one side of the ridge and another group was spotted just over the top of the ridge. There were many babies.”
If you enlarge the photo below and to the left, you can see a shot of the mountain goats from a distance.
