So, I’m sitting on a rock resting after climbing 3 miles up from Beaver Meadows to Ute Meadow, and staring at nothing. After about five minutes I realize that I am looking at a Northern Green Bog Orchid! And it’s HUGE! The plant is nearly two feet tall, and some of the flowers are an inch long. I always assumed it would be something small like the Twayblade. Anyway, this is orchid number 7 in my search. What a great day.
