Fern Lake Trailhead

I’ve never actually hiked the Fern Lake trail. But drove to the first parking lot where they had it gated off for the winter. Looked like relatively easy walking in the snow, so I put on my hip pack and started off. This beautiful Townsend’s Solitaire nearly knocked off my hat as it flew by to land in this tree.The view from the parking lot to the locked gate. See how the aspens all look well chewed.
Down the road ..It seems they are fencing all decent stands of aspen and smaller trees to keep the elk from eating it all.My lunch break on the bench at the trail head. My MWBS water bottle is getting much use.The Aspens have an extremely tough time growing straight up here.
