Bog Gentian grows in damp areas in August. We found it when we hiked to Berkely Park.
Glacier Lilies are found in the early season in the meadows--as soon as the snow starts to melt.
I think this is Gray's Lovage, growing in the dry rocky areas of the tundra.
Golden Mantle Squirrel looks like the chipmunk, but is bigger and does not have stripes on his face.
Do Mountain Goats travel in herds or flocks? Whichever it is, it is a treat to see them in the high meadows.
These early days of almost spring leave me with mixed feelings. What? no more snowshoeing?/Gee, let's plan a hike! We will probably get a few more snowshoe hikes in before the snow is gone in the mountains. And last summer we shoveled snow from some of the trail bridges on the Fourth of July.
