We went to Glacier National Park this past weekend. It’s about a 45 minute drive from our house and I wanted to check out the wild flowers.
Several years ago I found this patch of Mountain Lady Slippers. These are a wild orchid and this is the biggest patch of them I have ever found. They are right by MacDonald Lake Lodge but I bet the majority of people walking by never even see them.
I found a few more flowers and then I went looking for trillium. They are usually on the path at Avalanche Creek but the problem is that there is a wooden walkway and you aren’t supposed to go off the trail. So I have a really hard time getting a good photo.
Here’s the best photo I could get and it’s a little blurry. But I did get to see them. I don’t have any trillium around my house.
I also took the obligatory bark photos. I must have thousands of these by now.
Here’s the “famous” Avalanche Creek photo. So much water rushing through at this time of year.
And here are Symphony and Dennis on the board walk. It was a great day!
