A moderate hike leads through open pine forests, across sprawling fields of flowers, and to glorious views of surrounding alpine peaks. Lupine, shooting stars, beargrass—the French Cabin Creek basin has them all. Birds and beasts, including deer and elk, love the meadows and open forests for the dense insect population and nutrient-rich forage. Fortunately, the lack of standing water means most of the bugs are creepy crawlers rather than buzzing skeeters, which leaves you free to enjoy the grand views and lush flora and fauna without pesky biters and blood suckers.
