Trail Junction, Parker Ridge

Trail Junction, Parker Ridge

This sign marks the junction between the main Parker Ridge trail and the short trail to Parker Lake. Pk 7445 is visible through the trees to the right. The subalpine forest here is mostly lodgepole pine, subalpine fir and some whitbark pine. The latter was once much more common, but has been decimated by disease, insects and succession throughout much of the western U.S. July 2006
