Redearth Creek: Summer or winter?

in Bike, Redearth creek

I enjoyed a bike trip on Redearth Creek yesterday, all the way to the warden’s cabin. I thought it would be interesting to compare photos for identical locations summer vs winter.

Redearth creek

The above location is about 7.3K, just  past the campground. Has anyone else noticed how plentiful and vibrant the paintbrush is this summer?

Pilot

In the above photo, at 5.3K, you reach the first high point. You will have climbed about 230 metres net elevation.

Copper

As usual, skiing ’til sundown, but I was on the trail at exactly the right time to get that spectacular winter photo of Copper mountain.

Warden's cabin

The winter photo from two years ago shows the corral and hitching post which are now gone. The warden’s cabin is at the end of the trail at 10.6K.

Nicely done!
Are you pointing back down to the valley for the 5.3km photos?

Nice pix – yes, the paint brush seem to be extremely prolific this year!
Healy pass Glacier Lillies were the best in years too.
Any bear sign up there?

I saw bear scat twice on the trail. Looked to be a few days old.
