Most of the flowers looked pretty beaten up, probably from heavy rains this summer. I think these are Orange Sneezeweed.
The larkspur seemed to be doing fine.
I have no idea why Garrett decided to jump around at the top of the waterfall. He did get in trouble for this, but I did catch a cool photo with him mid-air!
These are Porter Aster. For some reason they have a purplish tint to them in this photo, but they were actually white.
The easiest trail for Handies Peak begins in American Basin. Handies reaches an elevation of 14,048 and after we found out what a reasonably easy hike it would be, we might attempt this later. I'm sure Maralee and I could at least make it up to Sloan Lake.
