Angel Rocks & Chena Hot Spring Trail (Part 2) and Granite Tors Campground (July 5th & 6th)

Anticlea elegans (Mountain Death Camas).
リシリソウの仲間…ここにも咲いていました。

 Here is the second bunch of our hike at the Angel Rocks and Chena Hot Spring Trail.
We stayed at Granite Tors Campground after the hike and we saw 2 peregrine falcons there.
We found a kingfisher by the river the next day, too.

We found a shiny golden mushroom.

I wonder what kind of dragonfly this is.

There were some different flowers blooming at the end of the ridge.

チシマゼキショウは実になり始めていました。

Lupinus arcticus ssp. arcticus (Arctic Lupine).
We found quite a few plants on the ridge,
but most of them were done.


The shelter on the trail.
From this place, it is about 3 miles to the hot spring.

We took the Hillside Cutoff Trail.
The trail was pretty wet and we had to walk on the swamp sometimes.

Falco peregrinus (Peregrine Falcon)
was looking down on us at the Granite Tors Campground.

Megaceryle alcyon (Belted Kingfisher). 
When we were fishing in the river, I saw a kingfisher.
It was pretty far from me, so the pictures are really blur.

ぼやけていて何だか分からないですが、
ヤマセミの仲間を見つけました。 
アメリカヤマセミという和名があるようです。

We tried to fish on the pond on Chena Hot Spring Road.
I caught a small grayling
and my partner caught a small rainbow trout.
We both let them go.
