Wildflower season is in full swing at Bow Valley Provincial park. Here are a few photos from the Many Springs trail which were taken on Friday June 17. Included is a photo of buffalo berries(aka bear food), which I’ve never seen this early in the season before.
As the season changes, so do the flowers which are in bloom. Two weeks from now you’ll see a different variety. On this trip we saw lady’s slipper, wood lily, elephant’s head, blue flax, paintbrush, sweetvetch, columbine, potentilla, and buffalo bean. I was surprised that we didn’t see any shooting stars – it should be the season for them.
