Pacific Crest Trail - Wild Flowers at Chinook Pass

These are a few pictures taken on a day hike along the Pacific Crest Trail in July near Mt. Ranier. The trail was mostly clear of snow except for the heavily wooded sections going in to Sheep Lake. There were also some great butterflies but they were a bit camera shy.
