In August 2018, Tim Alderton, Cyndy Cromwell, Nancy Doubrava, and Chris Glenn, traveled to Washington for some botanizing and horticultural sightseeing. With over a week spent visiting amazing places including the The Spheres (Amazon) and Heronswood Botanical Garden, Tim has narrowed his discussion to the wildflowers of Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. The trip was scheduled to coincide with the peak wildflower season in these high elevations. Enjoy the sights, wildflowers, and animals in this whirlwind discussion of some of Tim's favorites.
