Avalanche lilies (Erythronium montanum) are an early-season wildflower. Their flowers have white petals with yellow at the center, distinguishing them from the entirely-yellow flowers of glacier lilies. Avalanche lilies are currently blooming along Stevens Canyon Road near Reflection Lakes, but they are common in many subalpine areas in the park.

NPS Video, filmed 6/13/19. Description: Numerous white and yellow lilies cover a hillside surrounded by green leaves and ferns. The flowers sway in a breeze (ambient audio only).

For a bee the whole world must look purple! They take no notice of all the activity in the Paradise area, from talking visitors to the sound of construction on the Paradise Inn. These bees are happily buzzing through blooming Cascade asters in the subalpine meadows of Paradise.

NPS Video, filmed August 8, 2018. Description: Bees buzz from purple aster to purple aster, briefly landing to collect pollen on each flower. Visitors walk by on a trail in the background.
