Bull Trout Lake Area Wildflower Walk
Boise National Forest, August 2, 2008

After deep snows lingered on and on, we waited until August to have a field trip to some unnamed and unheralded lakes near popular Bull Trout Lake. We hoped that the mosquitoes would be gone and some late-blooming plant species would be seen. So it was, that August 2nd was the perfect day to wander around lakeshores and bogs with botanist Michael Mancuso.

Michael got our attention when he showed us the carnivorous English sundew (Drosera anglica). Sundew consumes insects. Another plant that stirred interest was Purple marshlocks (Comarum palustre) as most of us had never seen it before. We saw two different gentians, a sure sign that fall was approaching: Felwort (Swertia perennis) and Explorerís Gentian (Gentiana calycosa).
