Last week I went to Mt Rainier. I was hoping for flowers in alpine meadows. I had visited Mt Rainier 3 weeks before that and it was still covered in snow. Thus I though last week the flowers should be at peak. It turned out that they were way past peak. It is an unusual year for Mt Rainier flowers. It seems that even during peak there were few flowers and the peak itself was short lived.

No flowers – not problem. There is always something interesting to photograph.

I had always been fascinated by thin grass floating in Mt Rainier lakes. They are an interesting subject for abstracts.
