Nature Trails number 4: Hike for Tundra colors

I have been exploring the subdivisions recently developed around Stuckagain (road ends around the base of Near Point) to find where I can access the four "secret" trails into the park that I used to use. Most have private access, so come along with the old goat and see some scenic moose and people trails up into the brilliant tundra. Here we will rest-break amongst scarlet bearberries, purple blueberries,orange dwarf birch, and yellow willows. There will be some crowberries and lingonberries left to eat, and plenty of things to photograph. There were only 5 flowers left this last Sunday, but the views were stunning!

    I might be able to make it, but not sure yet... Where are people carpooling from? The bivouac trailheads, or somewhere else?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
