So much hiking, so few posts published! The hike to McGee Creek took place in late June on a very hot day. When I arrived at the trailhead, a pack train was just returning from the trip up the valley to McGee Creek.
The hike was before the recent spate of thunderstorms in the Eastern Sierras, it was very dry and many wildflowers had already bloomed.
There was very little to no shade on this trail, sweat was dripping and water gulping was going on.
There was a bee nestled in the bottom, either satiated with pollen or napping or dead – not sure which. I wonder what made the neat Queen of Hearts shadow on the lily?
Icy water and a snack are waiting in the car. The next time I hike McGee Creek, it will be in the fall when it’s cooler!
