Great hikes for this weekend

We're nearing the peak of Green Mountain wild flowers this weekend, still a little behind normal, but there are some spectacular areas on the mountain right now.

If you're up for a longer hike, the northeast side of the Halo Trail is covered with wild flowers--cinquefoil, and Fendlers Groundsel give a yellow backdrop while penstemon a and locoweed add blue and purple. There are a few death camas, a tiny lily, as we'll as onions and white fleabane (a small white daisy-like flower) and purple daisies.

If you just want a short hike, either east or west from the Utah parking area has lots of blooms and is great for a quick hike.

I'll post some photos when I get a chance, but wanted to update you on what's blooming!
