There's so much to see in Glacier National Park: majestic landscapes and a plethora of wildlife. So much to see that it's easy to overlook my favorite subject, native vegetation or as we goats call it - lunch. Moonwort ferns, pinegrass, morel mushrooms, lodgepole pines, and purple asters are just a tiny sample of the flora and fauna. Though overlooked by most visitors, it is the native plants in Glacier that plays an important role in the park's ecology.
This week's pic was taken when CP and I had an encounter with Park Rangers working to preserve a critical native plant species in Glacier.
CLUE: I'm at a "scenic" location.
BONUS QUESTION: What threatened native plant species were the Park Rangers working to preserve? (Hint: The Clark's Nutcracker fate depends on this species).
I'll reveal both on Friday, along with more detail on our encounter...
