Wildflower Walk - Grouse Gap / PCT Area and the McDonald Peak Botanical Area

Wildflower Identifications by Flower Floozie Liz

Sabin and I spent a marvelous morning hunting for flowers on the Mt. Ashland PCT from the Grouse Gap end, and found more new flowers than we had anticipated.  We then ventured up to the McDonald Peak Botanical Area.  Oh my goodness, what a find!  Ridge walking with views on all sides, and oh by the way, thousands of flowers.  The trail continues on to Split Rock and Wagner Peak, but we stopped atop McDonald Peak.  We were in heaven. Have GOT to do this one again.
