You never know what will turn up along the way to your destination . . .
Norma Linsky came across a moose and . . .
. . . a marmot!
Pat Jaquith watched two "black" bears forage on a (thankfully) distant hillside.
Linda Anderson saw a mountain sheep.
Meanwhile and stream-side, Pam Willison watched an American dipper at its nest while . . .
. . . Keith Hammer saw a few Harlequin ducks, including this male, and . . .
. . . a family of Canada geese!
When not distracted by wildlife, Keith Hammer saw Bog orchids . . .
. . . and a nice patch of Spotted Coral root orchids that included yellow variants!
Pat Jaquith managed to track down the ever-elusive Bog bean, at a bog no less!
She found some Parry's Townsend daisies on a dry hillside nearby!
Keith Hammer wondered if there might be some pine pollen in the air?
Pam Willison captured the serenity for which many of us seek the great outdoors, with this photo of a budding water lily . . .
. . . as did Debra Schweitzer in her photo of a clear mountain stream!
