I hope you aren't tired of flower pictures yet. This time of the year, the mountain is exploding in color. I saw my first grass- of -parnassus the other day. I love these flowers. It is a bit early for them to be blooming already. This heat has confused every living thing. I am really confused as well, it is nice and hot during the day and the lows at night are in the low 40s. We hit 43 last night. Don't forget to bring a jacket if you are hiking up in the near future. There is definitely a chill in the air.
