Tom Miner Trailhead

Joe and I recently drove 12 miles up the Tom Miner Basin to the campground and trailhead at the end of the road. It was a beautiful day. Partly cloudy and temperatures in the low 70's.

I lived in this area for nearly 10 years (in the 80's), but had only walked this trail once before.

I was delighted to spot this wild clematis climbing a spruce tree. It is also known as Virgin's Bower.

After a while, we turned onto the Petrified Forest Interpretive Trail. It took us up the sidehill on a series of switchbacks.
