I have never seen this plant before, and only saw it a handful of places today (although I was only seeing stuff from the road). The young lady at the Visitor Center called it beargrass. It apparently has several other names.
It only blooms every 5-7 years. Evidently this year there is a bumper crop. She said a ranger told her that in all the years he has worked at Glacier he has never seen so many.
Only saw one mountain goat today and wasn’t able to get a picture. Saw some Moo Cows on the way home after I left the park.
I had huckleberry pie for dessert tonight. Huckleberries are real big in this part of the country and are in season. I also bought some at a roadside stand (the guy said they were locally grown). They look like blueberries but are smaller. The ones I bought plain are kind of tart, whereas the pie was sweet (though it probably had sugar added).
I’m going to post a bunch of pictures of the Park and just let them speak for themselves.
