Flower Hike on the PCT Towards Pilot Rock 5-25-18

Photos by Bob, Flowers Identified by Liz

Five flower enthusiasts set out Friday in threatening weather. But to our surprise the rain let up for our first two hours on the trail.

This stretch of the PCT yields an incredible variety of wild flowers. Thanks to Liz for identifying them for us and to Bob for photographing many of them. My job was to make a list of the flowers. Here is the list in the order we found them on the trail (49 in all)! We may go back in June to see the Washington Lilies at their peak.
