The higher we got into the trees, the worse the mosquitoes were. Jay said it was like we were in, Lord of the Flies in this area.
The Lizard Head Trail splits off into the Wilson Meadows trail.
It is 3 miles to Wilson Meadows, which made it a 6 mile hike. The elevation gain is 1,000 feet, putting Wilson Meadows at about 11,000 feet above sea level.
We had no idea just how large the meadow would be, and there was an excellent view of Lizard Head Peak!
The meadow is very marshy and muddy with Wilson Creek running through.
Maralee and Jay were getting in the Wilson Creek a little bit here. Sunshine Peak is in the background. Wilson Peak isn't too far away from here, but isn't in view from the meadow.
Jay accidentally took this one of me, but I like it.
