I paid $6 to get in and drove up about15 minutes to get to the Alpine Loop. I am not sure what the elevation was to begin with, but within minutes of our ascention I was huffing and puffing. It was a steady climb but nothing too outrageous. We did miss a turn and wound up scrambling up a rocky climb that required to be on all 4... but we shaved off a few minutes to get to Scout Falls.
The trail was well marked and lined with mint leaves, pines, and other vegetation. The views were spectactular and I managed to get quite a few good shots. I guess it isn't uncommon to see Bighorn Sheep and moose, but I didn't have any such luck on Sunday. I only made it up about 1/3 of the way before the trail started to get a little bit hazy (there was still some snow up there).
Enjoy the pictures.
Snow in June!
