By the way it was a beautiful day (again!) up at Paradise Meadows – a bit cool in the morning but sunny & warm later – and the bugs are all gone! Lots of blue king gentian are blooming in the meadows as well as the cotton-grass, great burnet & Sitka burnet. The most recent black bear sighting is of one cub near Lake Helen Mackenzie on Tues. Aug. 24.
