Alpine Flowers of Mt. Rainier, 2nd Edition

It has been a pleasure to work with Dr. David Giblin, collections manager for the University of Washington Herbarium, in the production of a new wildflower guide for the subalpine and alpine zones of Mt. Rainier. The guide is printed on waterproof, tear resistant paper, folds open to two sides of 18 " x 30 " showing 108 flowers commonly found above the tree line. The 2nd edition includes family names and habitat designations. We hope that this easy to use guide will become a valuable resource for further appreciation of the splendor of Rainier's flowers of the higher elevations.
