Foggy Mountain Colour

| 1 Comment

Thick fog on the way up the mountain today – but at the 1100m elevation of the Wilderness Centre, the day started above the fog! However soon the clouds rose up higher & the remainder of the day was mixed.

The bright yellow-green is the foliage of Jeffrey’s shootingstar, while the orange-golden grass is the tufted clubrush.

King Gentian closed & open


Flowers are still blooming in the meadows also – the king gentian is abundant this year, and some blooms are even open – a rare sight.

Russula sp.


Not all the brilliant colours are from leaves & flowers- there are also some colourful mushrooms!
