View from the Alpine Garden

Now that summer is back on track, we’ve all been able to back outside to enjoy the weather. Winds have been very mild and temperatures have climbed over 50 degrees the past few days. Visitors were treated to some beautiful vistas, with visibility well over 100 miles! But now the summit seems rather quiet after a pretty busy weekend.

Today, Tom and I were able to take a hike down to the Alpine Garden. We’ve received a few inquiries regarding the state of the garden, and I am happy to report that the recent icing has not deterred the blooming of some of the flowers. Though not yet in prime season, the garden has many early season plants in bloom. The white and purple Diapensia are out, in addition to some Alpine Azaleas. See here, here and here. Not to mention the Krummholz, Mountain Avens and Sedges. Come see it for yourself!
