I didn’t find very many wildflowers to photograph at Glacier National Park when I visiting in June. Probably had something to do with all that snow . . . However, I did lover the ones I found. Seeing (and photographing) the alpine wildflowers at Glacier National Park is on my to-do list for 2012.
Here are some of the wildflowers I photographed in Glacier National Park
Striped Coral Root Orchid – Corallorhiza striata - a wonderful native orchid I spotted while driving to lunch one day
Beargrass – Xerophyllum tenax – a member of the lily family . Both elk & bighorn sheep graze on the flowers
Alpine Paintbrush – Castilleja rhexifolia – a relative of the Orange Paintbrush I photographed in 2010 in Colorado.
Pasqueflower – Anemone patens – a member of the buttercup family
