Ninebark - Wildflower Photograph by Lorraine Anderson

Wednesday, July 5th, 2006 - Report by

We started our day at 10:30 and here it is 4:30 and we just got home and if it wasn't for supper etc. we could have stayed out longer. Fireweed is the new kid on the block as far as showy highway flowers go. Also along the highway are lots of Daisies both Ox-eye and Scentless Chamomile, Hop & Rabbit's-foot Clover, Dock, Bird's-foot Trefoil, Buttercup, Cow Parsnip, Yarrow, Dogbane & Beach Pea. Just starting are Mullein, Black-eyed Susan.

We ate lunch at Esther Lake and down by the shore was this white flower. It was stunted and we don't see it very often here - It turned out to be Blackberry Bramble.

Another friend that we hadn't seen for a long time was Bristly Sarsaparilla at Devil Fish Campground.

In town outside of Harbor Friend's House (Off East Bay parking lot there is a large colony of Vipers Bugloss.

Today we saw one beautiful, gangly Moose, two Fox & two Grouse

Ninebark (pictured above) formerly was on the shores of Lake Superior and now is blooming profusely along Highway 61.
