I confess that I was a fan of the book The Secret Garden. At one point in the story the young girl expresses her opinion that the plants in the garden are all dead. The young Yorkshire lad responds “It’s as wick as you or me.” It’s all a matter of knowing how to look.
Compared to six months ago the Marshall Gulch – Aspen Trail loop looks very empty and spare. The bracken is dead, the oaks and aspens are bare and not much is blooming. However, if you look closer, you can see the signs of new life.
