Panoramic view of the mile-wide shoulder of a tundra ridge with a little valley in the middle.
Jacob's ladder (Polemonium). A few different purple species of the genus Polemonium are found in Alaska, and I'm not sure which one this is.
Whorled lousewort (Pedicularis verticillata). This might also belong to other Pedicularis species, including sudetica and langsdorfii... I'm just guessing.
Some species of the genus Spiraea, I'm not sure which.
Rainbow over the Clearwater Creek valley.
My wife bushwhacks through some dwarf birch on our way up into the mountains. There's no trail.
