Planned to do Fossil Creek, but was immediately turned-off by the over-packed parking lot at the trailhead. Instead drove up to Clover. Found myself a camp spot about 1/2 mile from the trailhead. The rain was pretty heavy, so I decided to take a snooze and wait it out. After half hour nap the rain had stopped. I threw on my pack, grabbed my camera and headed down to the creek. Wow, does the rain bring out the colors. Green, green, green...and the colors of the stone...beautiful. This turned into more of a photo tour than a distance hike. The big bumblebees were out pollenating flowers. Butterflies were everywhere..on the flowers, on the rocks, having little butterfly sex. I found a ripe raspberry bush and picked myself enough berries to "1/2 fill" a sandwich baggy. They were delicious. I had the place all to myself..huge contrast to the congestion over at Fossil.
