Wildflowers of Sumas Mountain, Abbotsford, BC.

These wildflowers were photographed on the western part of the Centennial Trail on Sumas Mountain, east of Abbotsford, BC. The hike was with Vancouver's GA Hiking Club on June 21, 2005. The trail is accessed from Batt Road, off Sumas Mountain Road, at UTM 60,160 E, 40,530 N (NAD83). The trailhead is about 350m elevation and the top is about 900m.

Many thanks to Terry Taylor and Eva Nagy for help in identifying the plants! The page numbers refer to "Plants of Coastal British Columbia", Pojar and MacKinnon, Lone Pine Publishing, 1994, where the plants are described. In some cases, the species are hard to identify. Please let me know if there are some plants that are misidentified - I can send associated photos of leaves and habitat.

To view the flower in half size, move your mouse over the thumbnail. If you want to download the half size images, add an address like "DSCN0565e.JPG" after the site address (replacing index.htm if it exists), then invoke "Save Image As" with the right mouse button. Replace 0565 with the 4-digit number under the photo. If you want the full size image (up to 2048 x 1536 pixels) or you want associated images showing the leaves or habitat of each plant, please email me.
