Usually you can expect to see at least some images of Eelgrass on this blog...even a complete post on nothing but eelgrass but today it's Beargrass that takes its place in the list of "grass" that isn't grass.
It's a very important plant in the Pacific Northwest....check it out here:
While I've enjoyed any run in I've ever had with Beargrass, today was special just due to the number of plants on the short 3 mile hike around Naches Peak at Mount Rainier National Park.
See for yourself. If you don't like Beargrass leave the post now.
