My second day of photographing wildflowers was spent at Sunrise. This is the highest elevation you can drive up Mt. Rainier and is on the Eastern side of the mountain. As the elevation changed, so did the plant habitat. It has been very dry in Western WA but the snow in the mountains just cleared in July, so that moisture stimulated the native plants to bloom. I did walk over patches of snow while hiking at Sunrise on August 6, 2013. Here are a few examples of plants blooming.
