Exactly one gull was to be found here near the summit. Maybe the tourists provide a better meal than the sea.
Sorry about the blur- but this was grebe-like, mostly gray, with a brown head.
Pie-bald is a rare genetic variant that's shows in many animals including humans.
8-point Buck 20ft. From Eagle Lake cartridge trail.
Abundant downy rattlesnake-plantain.

Goldenrod near summit.
Probably Virginia polypody. Leaves slightly pointed, but lacks the wide base of Appalachian polypody.
Red squirrel eating.
Three-toothed cinquefoil blooming.
