Labrador Tea and Bunchberry blooming at Sourdough Creek

Here are some photos I took on my recent excursion to Sourdough Creek. 

Bog Labrador Tea

The hills had been burned over within the last ten years and were covered with a vibrant growth of bog Labrador tea (Rhododendron groenlandicum--a so known as Ledum groenlandicum), willows, and other low shrubs. 





Ground Dogwood
   There were also some open areas of birch
    that had been untouched by the fire where the gound was covered with 
    bunchberry, also called ground dogwood (Cornus canadensis).
