It's been so long i can't remember what flower this is. It was on the side of our house when we had a lot of Tiger Lilies, but they were orange. I liked that there was this little entry like a launching tube on a spaceship. The shaft had sticky nectar around it to catch pollen.

Nabesna Mid Glacial Lake

This lake is a new phenomenon that was only 2 summers old by the time i came across it. I think what is happening is that the downward side of the lake is a small ridge and the glacier has lost enough mass that it can no longer ride over the top of it, halting it's forward movement. But, there could also be an ice dam somewhere in the area.
