Queens Cup At End Of Bloom
At the start of the hike there weren't many with all of there pedals. As you got higher up (and earlier in the season) the flowers looked better.

Brown Eyed Susans Undershot
Putting the sun behind the flowers is quite important - it makes the pedals glow and lets you keep the blue sky.
Species: Gaillardia aristata (common gaillardia, brown eyed susan)

Wet Hardhack
This is more technically Spiraea douglasii var. roseata . It's quite common near ponds and streams in the lower alpine around here, but I never bothered to take a picture of it. Today I did.

Red Columbine
Red Columbine - Aquilegia formosa is one of my favorite wild flowers - the colors are very strong and I find the shape nice to look at.
Species: Aquilegia formosa (Red Columbine, Western Columbine)

Bright Spot On Queens Cup
When there is a spot of light in an otherwise flat forest floor, you want to do the most you can with it.

White Fawn Lily
I always have problems with getting really close to these low growing flowers - they are low and it's hard visualize (or see through the lens) the backgrounds.

Lily
This photo is from a patch further up the river. It was a smaller group of flowers that had bloomed sooner than the later photos.

Field Chickweed With Dead Wood
This is another one of those flowers that apparently grows everywhere that I have never seen before. It's quite nice how it mats. Again, I figured this was an escaped garden plant.
Species: Cerastium arvense (field chickweed)

Canadian Dogwood Growing Trail Side
The "flowers" on this plant aren't anything special, but it is a nice ground cover to see.

Fire Star Orchid
Orchid's aren't exactly common in Canada. In Costa Rica we walk up to a volcanic rock field and what is colonizing the new ground? Orchids. This ground dwelling orchid is apparently considered a weed but I thought it was quite pretty.
Species: Epidendrum radicans (Fire Star Orchid)
