Filmy Angelica is a non-native species which grows above 5000 ft. We have it on Mt. LeConte. The interesting detail is watching the bees become drunk off of its nectar. The plant is usually covered in bees. You can often find Cedar Waxwings hanging out around the plant picking off the insects.
Yesterday was a beautiful day up top. The high was 73 with a low of 58 degrees.
