The trail begins near Currant Creek Reservoir and heads northeast into the hills.
We followed a two-track for a mile or two. After that, the only paths were faint game trails.
Our destination was White Ledge (10,400 ft), which is covered in snow in the photo above. You can see Steve as a tiny speck exploring the ridge at the right hand side of the panorama.
Below the steep cliffs, we found bits and pieces of what was once an ATV scattered all the way down the slope. I hope a rider didn't go down with it.
The photo above was taken at about 9000 ft, where the aspen leaves are just coming out.
This orange butterfly fed on the yellow flowers of what we think is slender cinquefoil, a plant of the rose family.
Fungi growing on the rocks is the same color as the butterfly, providing good insect camouflage.
On the way down, we passed a series of small lakes.
Can you see the ghost bird in the photo? This elusive creature was hanging out with a robin. From our short glimpses, we think it's an albino robin (1 in 30,000 robins are albino, according to an internet search). Proving the bird's identity with this pitiful photo isn't possible. We may go back to the area and hang out for awhile, hoping to get a better look.
We passed within sight of the steep, rocky terrain called Bear Hole Hollow. It's an intriguing area, but probably not accessible on horseback.
