I followed the creek up to the Mammary Lakes.
A good place to stop for lunch.
Nearby, the strange-coloured green-blue gentian was finally flowering a month late. Most Northamerican gentians do not open wide. The peculiar colour of this one would indicate that it attracts a very specific pollinator. Because of the narrow opening, the pollinator would either have a very long tongue or be able to crawl inside.
I hiked to the saddle at the left of the mammaries. There are always snow patches there and the dogs make straight for them.
Now I started to climb the Mammaries. Half way up I was amazed to find several clumps of Moss Campion in full bloom.
It is amazing where they grow!
