The hike up to the Sperry...
The hike up to the Sperry Chalets and Sperry Glacier is filled with fireweed. Highly recommended! (Photo taken Aug. '05)

I like the contrasts of the multiple shades of green with the flowers in the foreground and the rock. However, while I am certain there is Lupine along the way, this picture is of fireweed (Chamerion angustifolium formerly Epilobium angustifolium).

Thanks for the "fireweed" tip! I thought it was Lupine but I'm a dummy when it comes to plants and flowers. My mistake. I hope you had a great hike or climb!
