This old trail has been de-commissioned by the Forest Service but it still exists and I walk along parts of it when I can. Something of interest seems always to be there.
Fireweed ~ Epilobium angustifolium
Thimbleberries (Rubus parviflorus) are ripening
Thimbleberry blossoms (From my archives)
Pinedrops ~ Pterospora andromrdea
Pinedrops are saprophytic perennials, without chlorophyl or green leaves. You have to look closely at them to tell if they are newly blossoming or dried from the previous year.
Northern Green Bog Orchid ~ Platanthera huronensis
Bog orchids can easily be overlooked.
Pine white butterfly ~ Neophasia menapia
