I am sure there is a story behind the name...great shot of these "craggy" peaks and the dark trees make a great contrast against the snow.

Greetings YBMW, Thanks for your visit and wonderful comments. I'm not sure why they chose Mayflower Gulch as a name. Perhaps some prospectors were looking for gold and silver in the month of May and came across the meadows filled with spring flowers and decided to name the gulch for the May flowers. (I just made that up) The old mine up there is the Boston Mine. Who knows......I'll have to look that up and see if there is a real answer. I liked the way the ridges and trees framed the headwall crags. And of course, the snow was the whole point of it all ;-)) Thanks again.

Cheers,

Rich

Hey, I like your story...no need to look it up unless you just want to. Of course, I know you enjoy sharing any stories etc that go with the scenery. (Julie)

Hi Julie, Glad you like my explanation. Of course Desolation Gulch or Puma Gulch or Grizzly Gulch would be a lot more fun to make up a story about! Thanks for coming back.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Alfred, Thanks for visiting Mayflower Gulch and commenting. This is a wonderful place to go cross country skiing. The trail in is very easy and once you get higher the scenery is breathtaking. As is the elevation ;-)). Glad you like it.

Cheers,

Rich
