Boulder Creek Falls
Hike in the Bitterroot south of Darby with the Sierra Club. We hiked up Boulder Creek to Boulder Creek Falls. The wildflowers were beautiful and the falls were going strong.
Most of us camped out Friday night at adjacent Sam Billings Memorial Campground, and the rest joined us at the trailhead Saturday morning. It was a great group of people and an inspiring day.

Boulder Creek Trailhead
The elevation at the trailhead is 4500', and the trail ascends to the falls at a steady grade. It's about 1100' up to the falls, which are at 5600'. Bob was one of our Sierra club trip leaders along with Lorie.
The berry is backlit making the seeds inside the fruit visible.
The flowers were beautiful; they are also part of the food chain. These tiny bugs were busy having a nutritious lunch.
