Alpine WOW!

My total favorite, except for Calypso Orchids of course, is the Whitish Gentian. Walking across a trail above treeline, it is almost shocking to see this amazing white flower with soft purple shading — sometimes more purple than in these photos. They’re bigger than most of the flowers you find at high altitude — about 2 inches long — so they really stick out. Pow!
