This Website and Its Wildflower Book

This website has a two-fold purpose, 1) to bring to those who access this website the existence of a handy wildflower identifier book titled Wildflowers of the Olympics and Cascades, and 2) to have a forum in which comments can be made bearing on various aspects of the world of wildflowers.  The wildflower book is a product of many years of photographing wildflowers, primarily in the states of Washington and California. This resulted in the accumulation of a large number Kodachrome slides of Washington wildflowers, particularly in the Olympic mountains and various areas in the Cascades, from low to high elevation.

It seemed prudent to utilize the slides by publishing a wildflower book in full color which would become an aid to wildflower identification for those who travel the outdoors or who have in interest in understanding as well as admiring the beauty inherent in the colorful plants in nature.
