I enjoyed those Tony, many thanks. That was a cracking shot of Mount Shasta.

Tony:

You found an amazing variety of species on your trip. Great pictures. I was surprised you saw Fritillaria glauca and
Fritillaria purdyi in flower in late June.  I guess that northern California had a cold wet spring as we have had in southern BC.  We still can't get to most alpine areas because of deep snow.

Then using a walk from David Sellars website..... we went to ..........


If you have not yet discovered the walks- and videos, set to music, on the website of David Sellsars, then you are missing quite a lot! Whether, as Tony did, to discover some promising routes and plan your wowmn walks, or, like me, simply to revel in the scenery and flowers along the trails, I recommend you to search these sites www.mountainflora.ca       Videos:    http://www.youtube.com/user/MountainFlora

David has recently posted a most wonderful film on the NARGS forum of a hike up Mount Burroughs: all the flowers are lovely, but the carpets of Erythronium montanum are beyond exquisite.

Such a marvellous way of looking at alpines and putting them in their natural context. The erythroniums are just astonishing and I love those little lupins... makes you want to get your walking boots on!
