Today we hiked from Rock Creek trailhead out through Little Lakes Valley and out to Long Lakes. After reaching the water crossing at Box Lake we took a secondary trail that followed the creek to right and went to Long Lake. We continued part way around the north shore. The trails had many flowers and many species in bloom as well as many good views.

We arrived at the parking area at about 9 o’clock and got one of the last spaces available in the overflow lot. If you plan to do this hike go on a weekday and get there early.

After the hike we stopped along the Rock Creek Road on the way down and revisited some of the stops from yesterday, which were now in the shade and made for better flower photography.
