Heather Meadows, Mount Baker, Washington


Looking for inspiration across the border. Just a few hours away.


Blueberries and heather at Heather Meadow


Aster and leatherleaf saxifrage.


Alpine ? I'll have to find out what this is! I think it is a type of orchid.
Okay, so I just found out what this is: Elephant's Head Lousewort. Pedicularis groenlandica.



Wonderful walking trails


A little further down the trail

Technically this is Mt. Shuksan, but the summit of Mt. Baker is really close. We couldn't see the summit due to the misty clouds creeping through the pass.


Devil's Club. Take a close look to see the spines!
