BWCA Weather for Ely, Grand Marais, and the Gunflint Trail

 Wildflowers of the Northwoods and BWCA

This is the beginning of our 24th year of looking at wildflowers in Cook County, MN. We are three senior women who just love to get out and explore and learn new things. We are even getting together all winter but don't find too many flowers at that time, but no matter.

Tuesday, June 28th, 2005 - Report by

We went to Judge C. R. Magney State Park. First we took the loop, then part way along the trail to Devil's Kettle. The flowers of the day were One-flowered Wintergreen and Bush Honeysuckle. The biggest treat was on the way to Devil's Kettle in the first fenced in deer enclosure we saw two Pink Moccasin flowers blooming.


Wednesday, June 29, 2005: Our goal was to see the Wood Lilies on the Magnetic Rock Trail but found that they were too far in for us to walk and also heard at the Trailhead that they were past prime. We had been told of a bog in that area that was supposed to have an Orchid in it but there were a lot of areas of bogs and many were hard to access.
We then went to Poplar Lake Boat Access. In my memory it was so beautiful but that memory was before the blow down. We did see a nice patch of Canada Anemone blooming and another patch of Bog Buckbean that were through blooming. As we were turning from the Poplar Lake Access onto the Gunflint Trail we noticed a large patch of Northern Green Orchids. The roadways still have lots of Yellow Hawkweed & Buttercup, White Daisies & Orange Hawkweed. Lupine and Spreading Dogbane were the flowers of the day along with Cow Parsnips & Wild Roses.
Friends have told us of the Large Flowered Pensteman and Vipers Bugloss blooming and also Pinesap.
The day began foggy and misty but when we were ready to get out and hike the sun was out - Mother Nature knew it was a Wednesday.
