Thanks for visiting Flowers of Rainier. We look forward to your comments as well as your suggestions for improving the site. This site was developed by and is maintained by essentially a hiker, not a professional photographer or a botanist. We're always looking for help in improving accuracy, interest and gaining new perspectives. Corrections regarding botanical descriptions and terms as well as identification are, of course, very welcome. Additions will be made after each hiking season. Again, thanks for riding along!
