Route Scout Route Recorded  on Route Scout Popup | MapDEX
I was on the struggle bus Sunday morning due to a bit too much camp wine the night before so it was a slow start for me, lol. The rest of the group took off and as I was reading in my camp chair I got some fomo so I decided to suck it up. I have zero shame in admitting that I drove up to the end of the road to avoid having to hike extra. :lol:

I was maybe 30 mins behind the group so wasn’t sure if I’d catch up with them or not. Either way, when I got up there, I was SO happy with my decision to go. There was a stunning meadow and some water tanks surrounded by tons of beautiful flowers. As I stood there taking in the views, my hangover vanished…gotta love the powers of fresh air! I sent a quick text to the group saying I was in fact up in the meadow, but was totally happy just doing my own thing.

Soon after, Daniela called me and told me they were just on the other side of the meadow and I should cross wherever possible to join them. I attempted to get across the marshy meadow in several places only to be met with impassable areas unless I wanted to go for a little swim (no thx!). The group was highly entertained by my dramatic efforts to get across, but I did finally get over there lol. I spinned around and had a Julie Andrews moment in the middle of the field. I mean, how could you not when it was that pretty?!

I met the group while they were taking a break and we hung out a little bit longer before looping back. The whole meadow was full of gorgeous sunflowers & awesome views of the San Francisco peaks.

I’m so glad I got out for a quick stroll in this beautiful area before heading back to the valley!
