Kettle Mountain Meadows

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”).

    Oh, so beautiful, these mountains and wildflowers. Cindy – I surely agree with you – I’m smack in middle of the blazing hot, dry southeastern US and wishing for high altitudes and cool breezes.

    Your meadows are so full of deep colours, they are an amazing contrast to ours which are all pastels!
