Snowgrass Flats Loop

In search of wildflowers and mountain views, Grace and I headed to Snowgrass Flats in the Goat Rocks Wilderness this past Sunday. Although the views of Mount Adams, Mount Rainier, and Mount St. Helens were hazy from wildfire smoke, the sheer variety of wildflowers blooming bright--red and magenta paintbrush, pink monkey flower, lupine, subalpine mariposa lily, bistort, cinquefoil, and pasqueflower--made our day.
