On a foggy June morning, Boise Botanist Michael Mancuso, led us among rare plants in Bull Moose fen (peat bog) in the Sawtooth Valley's Decker Flat.

The sun broke out as we hiked the Redfish Ridge trail, to Redfish Lake's splendid Grand Mogul path.

We strolled amid ferns, moss, white veined Pyrola, huckleberries, giant firs and over damp boardwalks. Redfish Lake Creek was roaring as we crossed its bridge to meet the shuttle boat to the lodge.

In 2003, Michael has agreed to return so we can explore more of this unique area next to the Sawtooth Wilderness.

In the past, motorcycles riders have advocated developing a motorized route on the lake's southeast side. We support keeping Grand Mogul a quiet place.
