Andrea's adventures on the trail…

Owyhigh Lakes, MRNP

on May 21, 2015

I can’t believe I’ve never hiked to this little gem of a basin before.  The Owyhigh Lakes trail starts from the road to White River campground and winds its way up through forest for a few miles before breaking out into a beautiful basin with 2 little lakes. Snow is melted off at least a month earlier than normal this year, and a few wildflowers were starting to show, though in a couple of weeks it will be a riot of wildflower colors up here.  This is definitely going to be worth checking out again in a couple of weeks!
