Stonecrop and Pinesap

Stonecrop
Pinesap

I enjoy the flowers that struggle to grow in rugged, rocky dry places or deep in the woods. Stonecrop and Pinesap are that kind of plant. Stonecrop growing in the dry, rocky alpine slopes of the Olympic Mountains and Pinesap growing in the woods, living without chlorophyll.

Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily

Along the Grand Ridge trail west of Deer Park in the Olympic National Park. Tiger Lilies are a late summer blooming species. Of course, at over 5000′, winter lasts a long time and summer comes late.

Canadian Dogwood

Canadian Dogwood

The canadian dogwood is also known as bunchberry. The berries are bright reddish-orange and not edible. The forest floor is brightened up by their presence, since not a whole lot of showy flowers grow in the deep shade.

More Wildflowers

Yarrow
Indian Paintbrush
A clump of Mountain Bluebells

Another group of wildflowers from the Hurricane Ridge area of Olympic National Park. One of the advantages of the area is the road running up to over 5000′ … and the only high country access via motor vehicle in the park. That translates into a pretty crowded area.

    • Paintbrush and Yarrow: Fujifilm GFX-50R and Fujinon 120mm
    • Mountain Bluebells: Nikon D850 and Nikkor 80-400mm

Alaska Rein-Orchid

Alaska Rein-orchid

A visit to the high country of the Olympic National Park in the summer takes you to wildflower heaven. There are lots of very showy wildflowers, but there are also some that may not be showy, but are favorites, non the less. The non showy orchid here is one of my favorites in that category.

had a problem with the post schedule. Sorry this is a little late….
