Just another light day hike in the Wind River Range with the pups. The first mile or so was a little meh, as you had to walk the road a bit to get to the “official” trailhead that has no parking because it’s in a campground and then there was some ranch property to parallel for a few minutes, but after that the trail got good.
Boulder Creek was a stunning little creek to walk next to. It absolutely thunders in spots as it makes its way down several scenic cascades that can be seen intermittently through the trees. The trail got a little buggy as if left the creek to pass by a few marshy areas and tarns, but in general they were not bad by Winds standards. We turned around just past at a nice campsite where the river widens out and the current dramatically decreases. After taking a quick swim and then exploring a little further up stream we returned the way we came. The trail was in excellent shape and was easy to follow.
