The Teanaway in June is a good time for wildflowers and bird watching. Heading for the dry side of the state, we trade a longish drive for a  better chance of sunny skies. We will hike through a Ponderosa Pine forest to a pass with a view of surrounding peaks. Some years there is still some snow on the ground in June.

I am not checking vaccination cards. I will only carpool or be indoors with those I know are fully vaccinated. We can maintain plenty of distance outdoors. I suggest that anyone who wants to carpool, make arrangements before the day of the hike and check the vaccination status of others to your satisfaction.
