Wildflowers at Saginaw Mine Site

Post by MikeT » Wed Feb 21, 2018 10:37 am

These pictures were all taken at the Saginaw Mine site in 2015 when we paddled there to see the mine site in mid-June, when I usually am not on the island. The site is south of Conglomerate Bay near Mine Point. The mine remains were hard to photograph due to the vegetation, but many flowers were in full bloom. So, here are some pictures of some of the flowers I found. The island always offers beauty in large and small ways and I think these are a good example of the delicate beauty.
