Ceran St. Vrain Trail‏

Late spring may have arrived in Boulder. But not in the high foothills where I hiked today.

“In late May and early June, the Ceran St. Vrain Trail is one of the best places to find large clusters of fairy slipper orchids,” says my favorite Boulder area hiking guide. In fact, I didn’t see one wildflower along the first couple of miles of the trail that runs though dense pine forest along and always in sight and sound of the South St. Vrain Creek. (St. Vrain is a respected name here. Ceran St. Vrain (1802-1870) was a fur trader in these mountains from 1824, a businessman, and a pioneer.)

The creek is seldom as still as this:
