This page picks up where Page 1 ended, on July 17th at 10:04 AM.  We spent the next couple of hours hiking in an area where we had never hiked before and we found an abundance of flowering plants - so many that the 18 Rows on this page only go through 11:27 AM - a total of 1 hour and 23 minutes!  Click on any thumbnail to begin.

July 17th Continues from Page 1 (at 10:04 AM)
  The first two shots in this row show some ground cover which is common here at Eagle Summit - a great variety of lichens and mosses, in addition to all of the flowering plants and shrubs. The third shot shows a Pale Gentian (Gentiana glauca).
