Bog Orchids

As the snow melts at the higher elevations wildflowers that bloomed months ago at lower elevation are now in full color. It's quite the trick to see the same species in bloom 3-5 times throughout the summer. Currently the west side of the Timberline Trail is pretty much snow free.  Paradise Park ( 6 miles west of Timberline Lodge) should  peak with flowers in the next few weeks. Elk Meadows currently has great displays.
Avalanche lilies, follow the melting snow
August and September are wonderful times to visit.
Wild huckleberries should be ready for picking and the colors of fall are outstanding.
The fall raptor migration is at it's peak and can be seen at the Bonney Butte Hawkwatch Site.
