Mill Creek trail in Inyo National Forest in Northern California crosses some very fine grassy meadows. It’s a nice enough trail, but it takes a lot of driving on rough roads to get there. On the drive in, we saw a blonde colored black bear running across the road. No chance for a photo, unfortunately.

Martin’s Park is a little visited area near the Low Divide in the Olympic National Park. It’s about 17 miles in if you take the short route. If you hike up the Elwha River Trail, it’s over 25. Hence, the little visited status. There are a couple of small lakes and large areas of meadow.
I was camped at Low Divide with my hiking buddy (see the trail in the lower left) and we took a day to hike up and visit the area. This was in July, so there was still a fair amount of snow left.

I was struck by the contrasting colors of the bright green Rhododendron leaves and the rusty red of the rotting log.
