Although the weather has been rather cool, wet and with snow forecast again for this weekend, the wildflowers are managing to bloom pretty much on schedule. At the bottom end of Munson Creek near the footbridge a few Trilliums are blooming today. A little further up the trail some Glacier Lilies have emerged.
Western White Trillium, Trillium Ovatum
Glacier Lily, Erythronium grandiflorum
Another mile up the trail and no flowers have appeared yet, but the lichen are doing well after a cold winter in the canyon.
Frosted Rocktripe, Umbilicaria vellea
