The flowers are in bloom on Pigeon mountain. I saw at least 20 species, some which I knew the names and some I didn’t. I even saw a pink Forget-me-not which I’ve posted below. I thought they only came in blue.
When I was about 3K along, I ran into Bob and Violet who were returning and assured me the flowers were spectacular.
I was happy to get the update from Bob and Violet beause it’s not that easy to access these flowers, with a hike of 6k and an elevation gain of 600 metres.
Starting from the trailhead at Dead Man’s Flats, I biked up the Skogan pass trail to 5K where it meets the trail up Pigeon mountain. I hiked a further 1K up the mountain and was rewarded with a magnificent carpet of wildflowers.
I much prefer the bike on this trip because it only takes 12 minutes to get back down(5K) from the Pigeon/Skogan junction. It took me 57 minutes of moving time to ascend, with plenty of rest stops.
I don’t know the names of most of the flowers, so if someone would like to fill in the blanks, all the pictures are numbered.
