I thought I’d add a visual coda to the series on colours in plants, since Bryant is feeling under the weather today. These photographs are from last weekend’s near-solitary field-trip up to the peak of Kettle Mountain while I was attending Botany BC. As of a few weeks ago, these meadows formed part of the northeast edge of the Cascade Recreation Area, but they have now been added to E.C. Manning Provincial Park. One hopes that this might mean additional enforcement in dealing with those who despoil the meadows by driving off-trail (examples of both responsible and irresponsible use if one searches Youtube for “Whipsaw” and “Trail”).
