What a glorious image. When it first popped up on my feed, I thought it was a watercolor!

Dawn, for some reason this photo remainds me of fireworks - only Mother Nature's kind!

Jay said...

Ah, so that's what they are!! Why are they so named, do you know?

Dawn said...

thanks Rhonda and Jay.

yes Jay I do know, they are named avalanche lily or glacier lily, they grow only in the subalpine areas. these are found near reflection lake at Mt Rainier approx elevation 5000 feet.
