WNPS Webinar: Exploring the Pasayten High Country

WNPS Webinar: Exploring the Pasayten High Country

Green/Environmental, Nature, Trip, Education
The Koma Kulshan Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society regularly holds educational seminars--free and open to the public! We are currently hosting our monthly meetings online. Follow the meeting link below to register for this webinar.
The Pasayten Wilderness, just east of Ross Lake and nestled against the Canadian border, encompasses over 500,000 acres of land. Our guest speaker spent a week honeymooning there in mid-August, backpacking a 40+ mile “lollypop loop” to Remmel Lake, Upper Cathedral Lake, Cathedral Peak, and Amphitheater Mountain. There were few people and lots of flowers, although peak bloom appeared to have been a week or two earlier. With a four-night base camp on the shore of Upper Cathedral Lake at 7400', the two meandered across lithosol meadows, tiptoed through wetlands, scrambled up Cathedral Peak’s summit ridge, and explored the three highest points on windswept Amphitheater Mountain with a peak elevation of 8358'. Wildflowers, grasses, and trees all caught our speaker's eye. He’ll share some favorites from the trip in this presentation, including a few that were new to him. He is a long-time chapter member, professional photographer, author of two books (Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest and Trees and Shrubs of the Pacific Northwest) and the Washington Wildflowers mobile app. You can preview some of his beautiful photos at pnwflowers.com.
