A few wildflowers from Mt. Rainier National Park. Merten’s Bluebells (Mertensia paniculata) and a somewhat beleaguered Avalanche Lily (Erythronium montanum). A better version of this flower can be found in a previous post of mine. Next trip there will not be so rushed and I will likely have more of a chance to get the macro lens after these a bit more.

A roadside wildflower. There were some wildflowers flowering in July, but not a lot. When I go back later in the summer there should be more – and (almost) no snow!
Tabletop Mountain from the start of the Bagley Lakes trail. I am going to venture further up this trail most likely in late August -as it was closed this early in June. The fact that I went down the hill on my butt for about 6 feet while trying to protect my camera made it clear why the trail was closed. These were taken just off the upper parking lot of Mt Baker Ski Area.
