Add A Little of This and That

We finally spotted a few wildflowers after we began our return to Narada Falls.  As we approached tree-line, we saw a few of these purple flowers still blooming.

I spotted an Osprey flying over Reflection Lake, and Paul spotted this Red-Breasted Nuthatch.

The only other birds we sighted were “Robber Jays,” now known officially as Canada Jays, which greeted us several times looking for handouts.  They made their official visits, however,  when we stopped for lunch.

The two gray blurs in this shot are Canada Jays diving after the trail mix Leslie held in her hand.

They were far too close, and too fast, to catch in flight, so I settled for this shot of one taking a cracker from Les.

It’s easy to get caught up in the beauty of Mt Rainier towering in the distance, but experiencing nature up close adds a whole other dimension to Wilderness.
