Please stay on marked trails. Take only pictures; do NOT pick the wildflowers. Don’t feed the animals (people food can kill them) and don’t get to close. Remember they are “wild” animals, not pets. Leave nothing behind, especially not trash or footprints in the wildflowers. And please remember, alcohol and altitude do not mix, especially if you add ATV to the equasion. Do your drinking after you come back in from the trails!
