Glacier's Wildflowers

I am so pleased when I learn something new and it sticks, you know?  Especially when it is not a skill I use every day, such as identifying flowers in the mountains.  When we visited Glacier National Park in 2013 I took along a guidebook and set myself to identifying the flowers I saw.  This summer we went back to Glacier again for a short visit.  I was tickled with how the names of the flowers just came rushing back to me--Pearly Everlasting, Glacier Lily, Fringed Parnasis, and so on.   It was like bumping into old friends I hadn't seen in a while.
 Yay.  Go, Brain.

    1. One of the things I most enjoy about travel is the differences in flora and fauna. When we went out to some national parks in Washington this year they were almost all new to me!
