Gary H. Minish

Thanks for all your great comments! I'm glad so many of you find these wild plants interesting. It's a whole different world on top of the mountain where the summers are extremely short and everything is buried in 20 - 50 ft of snow all winter. Everything except alders is very short and tiny. #107461

Salix artica - Another plant growing on Thompson Pass - A very small family of willow that grows as runners in the tundra. Sometimes they're just a little bundle of leaves sticking out of the ground. They make some fairly large pussy willows though. This one is roughly 1.5 cm in diameter.
