Butler Gulch Wildflowers 720-3

Butler Gulch

Butler Gulch is one of my annual summer hike locations After the 1.5 mile steep hike up through the forest, a clearing greets you (in late summer) with a meadow of wildflowers. Further up, a clear creek flows down from the melting snows, nourishing the wildflowers that spring up in the warmer weather.
