Flowers of Mt. Rainier

SubalpineFirs and Spirea.jpg

Last week at Paradise the ranger said we might have arrived about a week past the prime wildlfower viewing, but there was still so much to see, like this rosy spirea and bistort, growing beside subalpine firs. The mountain did not show itself, but we thought the rich colors of the flowers were even more beautiful in the low light of the misty day.
