The Forgotten Giant

Glacier Peak, Washington's 4th tallest mountain and the most isolated volcano in the Cascade Range, looms above sprawling, rolling mountainsides covered in flowering meadows (and profuse bugs). Despite the absurdly heavy snow pack during the winter of 2010-2011, the wildflowers are putting on a pretty good show in many areas. Lupine, Cow Parsnip and Arnica seemed to be the most profuse in this area, but Mountain Aster are making a strong showing this year too. Unfortunately the sky did not feel like putting on an equally interesting show.
