Greenstone Mountain Wildflowers and Mammals July 14, 2020

My wife and I took a mid-afternoon drive up to the top of Greenstone Mountain.  It was our first time up there and what a treat so close to home.  The last third of the drive near the top was alive with wildflowers and I took some photos to be identified later.  It has been a very wet late spring and early summer and I think this added to the wildflowers beauty along the road and in the meadow areas near the top.
