Wildflowers beckon visitors to Mount Spokane State Park

PARKS — Most of the trails are open for hiking and biking at Mount Spokane State Park.  If that's not enough incentive, the photo of a Calypso orchid above indicates the wildflower are providing additional attractions.

"These little blooms seem to have been out for a week or more at Mount Spokane," said birder Mike Miller, who  photographed the "fairy slipper" today.

June is prime time to see the calypsoes farther up the mountain as well as many other blooming flowers, including beargrass.
