Because of the wet spring and summer, we have a lot of mushrooms. Higher up in the forest was this large clump of cauliflower mushroom that grew so strongly, it pushed up a chunk of forest floor.
The bottom of Long Meadow had a nice display of common red paintbrush.
at the top of Long Meadow a nice clump of Mountain Arnica was blooming.
Because I was alone, I did not stick to the trail and wandered over the tundra above the treeline. Here is a nice view of my lake with cotton grass in the foreground.
Bog orchids were still plentiful – their perfume was divine – her are some mixed with sword-leaved scenecio.
I followed the creek up to the Mammary Lakes.
