So where were we…
…oh yeah, coming down Mount Washington in thick clouds and high winds.
We got down below the swirling cloud cap and the worst of the winds and started seeing some Alpine flowers, not the sub-arctic rarities we had hoped for, but hey, we’d come this far for photos, so we stopped to get what we could.
Along the road we found Bunchberry:
These are showing their little red buds, but haven’t quite blossomed yet.
In an ideal world, these would have been captured as tilt-shift photographs with expansive mountain views, but given the still-high winds, that was not to be.
This time. I’ll be back.
By now Lizz and I were ready for breakfast, so down to town we went.
Stay tuned for Part Three. 🙂
