I recently read a review in my local newspaper of a new book just published by the author, Bob Gibbons, entitled Wildflower Wonders: The 50 Best Wildflower Sites in the World, whereby he states that Mount Rainier National Park ranks at the top of that site list. Now that makes me feel good since I live not far from the park, and I can identify with the author’s sensationalism about the park’s prolific wildflowers. But I had no idea that the meadow wildflowers here in my state’s national parks were that more spectacular than meadow wildflowers elsewhere in the world. That’s a pretty bold statement in itself to make. But then again, I haven’t traveled around the world to make these sorts of assessments. Also included on the “50 best list” was Olympic National Park’s wildflowers, located here in Washington State as well. I would like to share with you some of my own photos of meadow wildflowers from these parks. Do you have a favorite spot for wildflowers? If so, I’d like to hear about it.
