Mountain Flowers - Glacier National Park & Mt Rainier

Summer is at its best and I am sure everyone on this side of the world are enjoying the season. 
While the mercury is rising here, the mountains are blooming with flower-studded meadows and pleasant temperature. 

Last few weekends we have been spending a lot of time by the mountains - camping, hiking and site-seeing. We were lucky to be able to spot even some wildlife during these trips ... a separate post on that later.

Below are some of the spring flowers I captured from recent trips to Mt Rainier and Glacier National Park. 
If you happen to know the names of some these unidentified flowers, please do share :) 

Beargrass ... yes that's the name :)

the very pretty Ox-eye Daisies

some more variety of daisies...

Meadows carpeted with Glacier Lilies

Lupinus .. a very commonly sighted flowers

this may be the scarlet Paintbrush

not sure if this also belongs to the Paintbrush family

These flowers have the fragrance of rose and guessing these are wild-roses

unidentified beauties...

nature's rock garden :) Rumi once said "Hear blessings dropping their blossoms around you"
