July 14th, 2004 -  Guest Report from Lee Zoph

Today we went to the Magnetic Rock Trail (Near the BWCA's Canoe Entry Point 57). We had to wait in the car quite a while until it stopped raining. Many years ago I had seen Slender Ladies-tresses on the trail so I was keeping my eye open for them. Didn't see any. The three favorite flowers on the trip were: the many clumps of Harebells - even one white clump, the bright orange Wood Lilies, and the many Blueberries that will be ripe soon  (Webmasters Note:  The area is known for its blueberry picking, along with the nearby Granite River's Blueberry Portage). It rained off an on. One of the three of had a rain suit that she kept putting on and taking off, the other two just got wet but not cold.

There has been a burn there and there were many charred standing dead trees. This was ugly but it opened up the view and we could see a long ways. It was a wonderful trip and we were glad we went.

___________

For those on the Gunflint Trail, soon there is a very large field of Blue Flag Iris across the trail and a wee bit south of the Hungry Jack Road.  Then if you turn onto the Hungry Jack Road very soon on the right-hand side of the road are a large batch of Wild Calla Lilies and more Iris farther on.    Wonderful Lupine near Windigo.

See what we found last year at this time of year!


Be sure to stop back throughout the Summer to see our weekly wildflower reports from Lorraine Anderson of Grand Marais, Minnesota.
