photo-4We went for a late hike yesterday to Three Sisters to walk around the meadow look and let the kids climb on the rocks.  We had a great time!  I also found out for the first time that this time of year the meadow is FULL of beautiful, wild, Purple Iris!  They were incredibly stunning and I have never seen them growing in the wild before and I would highly recommend going out there soon to see them. (also saw some bluebirds too!)

The trail we were on was the Bluebird Meadow and Wild Iris Loop from the upper (west) parking lot off of Buffalo Park Road.  This is a great place to start hiking as it pretty gentle and out in the open and you have good access to the 3 Sisters and the Brother.

The Alderfer/Three Sisters Park has 770 acres of open space and over 10 miles of trail for hiking and mountain biking and connects to the Evergreen Recreation District property.   There are some really nice short loops that you can do late in the day after work and some longer loops you can do for a good half day experience.
