CommentsThe meadows are a bit muddy in the areas without boardwalks, but it is worth the effort to see these flowers! I expect that there should still be plenty for another week or two.

Blooming in the forest: thimbleberry (Rubus parviflorus), western white anemone (Anemone deltoidea), western starflower (Trientalis latifolia), bunchberry (Cornus pumila), goatsbeard (Aruncus dioicus), vanilla leaf (Achlys triphylla), some Pacific bleeding heart (Dicentra formosa), valerian (Valeriana sp.), queen's cup (Clintonia uniflora), starry false Solomon's Seal (Maianthemum stellatum), foamflower (Tiarella cordifolia), woods strawberry (Fragaria vesca), and Youth-On-Age (Tolmiea mensziesii).

Blooming in the meadows: profuse amounts of elephanthead lousewort (Pedicularis groenlandica), western bistort (Polygonum bistortoides), and few-flowered shooting star (Dodecatheon pulchellum). Also blooming are: western columbine (Aquilegia formosa), Menzies' larkspur (Delphinium menziesii), arrow-leaf groundsel (Senecio triangularis), tall bluebells (Mertensia paniculata), yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus), harsh paintbrush (Castilleja hispida), Lewis' monkeyflower (Mimulus lewisii), Oregon saxifrage (Saxifraga oregana), and cow parsnip (Heracleum maximum).
