One of the first things I noticed as we drove into Alaska in early June was the amazing number of wildflowers that lined the roads. That was a sparse showing compared to the profusion of wildflowers now in bloom. It seems everywhere I look there are lupine, cow's parsnips, wild geraniums, chocolate lilies, coastal indian paintbrush, forget-me-nots, wild roses and more, and yet more flowers. The air is heavy with the scent of flowers. Aurora took all the flower pictures shown here.
