26th. On the day I helped (Saturday), we worked beside fields of Lupine, doing drainage work, and wooden step installation.
In between inhaling the scent of flowers all day, and pausing,

coming, and going up and down the trail.
I wandered the loop after work, up and around to Panorama
Point, views off to Mt Adams, and all those mountains growing
with each step. The flowers in all their variety, and the
people in every size, speaking different languages, all enjoying the mountain.
