A hike with Richard and Joey Radanovich shared with lots of mosquitos. After we reached Spuller Lake, we headed up to a ridge to avoid the mosquitos.

This trip with Marren and Richard Radanovich was a delight. There were no mosquitos yet the meadows were green and the creek bubbling along nicely. Most wildflowers, however, had finished.
