17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Beargrass at Logan Pass, Glacier National Park

A close friend and I were doing a car trip half way across our country together and wanted to see Glacier and Yellowstone National Park. We came across beargrass at high elevation at Logan Pass. It only blooms every 5-10 years when conditions are near perfect. At a time when all are worried about climate change, I'm glad this is something that hasn't changed...yet.
