Philmont – Day 5, Ute Meadows Camp


 

We have a two day stop here in UTE Meadows… Home Sweet Home.  When we all got into camp we had the option to make a short hike (about a mile) down to Miranda to go shooting.  The kinds decided that they just wanted to hang out at the camp site and enjoy some time just being in camp… so that’s what we did.

Mr. Man had another unfortunate accident UTE Meadows… I think the only part left of him that was not completely busted was his head.

You’d have to ask if you want more details on Mr. Man!!!!

Philmont Day 5 – The trail to UTE Meadows (Part II)


 

After enjoying the rewards of the ridge… we pressed on into the Aspen Trees.

The Aspen forest that we walked through was really cool… I love those trees!!! There was a "pond" that was sitting among the trees at the top of the ridge.  This was stagnant rain water, but it was amazing to see there.  After this pond, we went down back into more pine trees and the the trail opened up into this beautiful meadow.

It’s hard to see… but the place is loaded with tiny flowers… I’ll bet this would be a pretty place to spend a morning!!!
