There are herbs, too, the pink plumes of bistort, a powerful astringent, white clusters of labrador tea, high in ascorbic acid content and used to treat colds. There are the yellow-centered white blooms of mountain avens everywhere you look, a primary food source for Dall sheep. There are tall white flowers on reddish stems, bear flowers, another favorite bear snack and yet another version of the saxifrage. On the way to lunch, a fox trots past our van with a ground squirrel in his mouth, also on his way to lunch.
