Ron Long has just returned from a two week expedition to Pink Mountain, where he was able to photograph, catalog and map the positions of plant species on the summit plateau. Ron describes the wildflowers this year as being "spectacular".

 

  Rarely Seen Plants

There are over 200 species of flowering plants on Pink Mountain and few can be considered common in British Columbia. Eleven species are red or blue listed, meaning they are severely endangered, and many others, while not rare, are rarely seen. They occur in remote habitats that are difficult to access and so they remain hidden – except on Pink Mountain. With road access and easy walking on the summit Pink Mountain provides an unmatched opportunity for arctic/alpine research and an opportunity for anyone with a serious interest to enjoy the plants.
