Over the 4th of July weekend, my husband and I spent time at Big Creek. Last week I provided a write up; this week is all about the pictures. 
The Big Creek Lodge is home to more than just guests.

This bird had at least three little ones to feed in there.

Some of the hummingbirds fought, but I didn’t get a good shot of that.

There’s some baby birds!

Old equipment up at Werdenhoff Mine.

We only looked at the building from the outside.

But a missing wall panel gave me a glimpse of the inside.

And here, from the rear.

The original rock-smashing machine!

View from the mine down to a cabin that seems to be getting some upkeep.

Just one big log was blocking the Smith Creek Cutoff Trail, close to the mine. 

Lots of bear grass growing this year!

I’m not 100% sure what flower this is, but I like it.

Ambrose found some bear sign – the rock got flipped to see if there were tasty grubs to eat underneath.

This dilapidated cabin is next to the cutoff trail.

An animal on the road – we didn’t run over it.

We also managed to miss this deer 🙂
