We hiked the Yellow Aster Butte trail as well as the Chain Lake Trail. The Aster Butte trail had beautiful fall colors. The hike was strenuous especially the last part to the top of the Butte which was straight up. But well worth the effort....More

This is a must-see! Especially after winter break and roads just open. Spectacular views of mountain peaks with snow, lakes, forest... Artist Point has a great parking lot with restrooms to park at and you can walk right out onto the snow. Absolutely stunning!!!

This is a beautiful part of the country, and there's a lot of variety to be seen...tree-lined roads, rustic buildings, rushing rivers, sunlight streaming through the trees (when it's not cloudy or rainy), a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of civilization. It...More
