This page continues July 18th from the previous page, at 9:56 AM near Underwear Overlook as we hike and climb around in search of amazing flowers to photograph.  Beginning with the second shot in Row 5 we move to an area just a short distance below Twelvemile Summit.  We shot several photos there and then we continued on home.  Click on any thumbnail to begin.

July 18th Continues from Page 3 (at 9:56 AM)
  Welcome to Page 4! In first position in this row we show you yet another Frigid Shooting Star (Dodecatheon frigidum)- notice all of them which are in the background too. In second and third positions are shots of Purple Bittercress (Cardamine purpurea). This is the most intense red color we'd ever seen this flower show.

  Here is a shot of Snowline Wintergreen (Pyrola minor) and then we leave this area. In the second shot we are back in the rig and driving back towards Eagle Summit. The second shot shows the area we hiked in both yesterday and again this morning within the outlined area. The third shot shows specifically where we had the best luck finding flowers - below the permafrost lobes, where there is melt water and cooler temperatures.

  Here is a single final shot which was taken as we drove back towards Eagle Summit from the Underwear Overlook Area. Our next stop was a gulch just below Twelvemile Summit, where we found the Dwarf Hawksbeard (Crepis nana) shown in the second and third photos. This was another new species for us.

  Here are two shots of Little Weaselsnout (Lagotis minor) and a Bee and then another first for us - the Alpine Forget-me-not (Myosotis asiatica). This should not be confused with the Arctic Forget-me-not which we showed you on previous pages. This Alpine Forget-me-not (Myosotis asiatica) is a much taller species than the previous one, and this one is also a new species for us. As a matter of fact, this one is the one that is the Alaska State Flower.
