White Mountain Heather
Cassiope mertensiana

I was a little surprised to see flowers still blooming, as I was pretty sure that frost had already come to these higher elevations. The yellow leaves in the background are deer cabbage (Fauria crista-galli).

Location: Harbor Mountain Trail, near Sitka, Alaska

Previous: Partridge Foot Seed Pods (Luetkea pectinata)
Next: Varied Thrush (Ixoreus naevius)
