Summer lasted a whole week. Then it stormed and rained again. The 15th was a sunnier day, but cold, and I hiked up the mountain towards the North Ridge. It was a day of cold wind and striking cloud shadows.
Long Meadow, on the way up, was full of flowers. Mostly arctic lupins,
Interspersed with white and green bog orchids…
And at last a few paintbrush were showing their colours.
That is a bit of my lake in the middle distance below Wilderness Mountain.
