A little sad as the YMCA was there for over 50 years and not even mentioned in the story except for a photograph from 1800s They built the camp and developed the lake. If it was not for their passion for the property it woul not be there today.

We love going to Bluff Lake and the Lodgepole Pine.... particularly when we have young children visiting. You can go out on an adventure that is very interesting for all ages and the children can handle it due to the short hike involved. We've parked at the place that has you going to the Lodgepole Pine first, then the lake.... and recently we parked at the opposite end of the lake than we usually see, and walked around the whole lake. You can see the very old cabins.... the public wasn't allowed to do the whole lake walk until a couple of years ago. We like to go in late spring/early summer the most so the lake is fairly full and the meadow by the Lodgepole is green. Fun to see tadpoles and polywogs in June last year... And we go in the morning.... there by 9 or 10 AM. Fun!

I remember 2 winter YMCA-Indian Guides trips to Bluff Lake with my dad. I was probably in 3rd and 4th grade (1973).

Wow. We've just got tornados, hail, heavy rain and floods. Kind of fun to all get in the Big Guy's Mancave and watch the weather channel. Just 60 miles from us the state capital Jefferson City had a really bad tornado and killed 3 people. They are facing another one as I write.

Very strange driving up the mountain last night in heavy snow. At the end of May. Thank heavens it wasn't sticking.

Nevermind! me being gullible again.

Idyllwild got 5 inches, but in BB, no snow for most. :9(

Daffodils were great this year, just gone about a week ago. Planted them in the fall, divided among all kinds of other plants. I think they help keep the gophers away (well, I hope).

I stand corrected. Apparently tulips are mildly toxic.

Tulips aren't toxic. Daffodils are. I plant them whenever the companies ship them to me. I think it's Oct.

May 23 : 10:29am
IDKnothin for our zone, usually in early to mid October

I was thinking more in line with the toxic tulip.

(I just discovered Joker is a bulb - hah, I didn’t know)

May 23 : 10:22am
Back to the bulb planting time line ...
In the fall - when would you stick those jokers in the ground?
Anyone ??
