Lupines (Lupinus arcticus)
Lupines are among the most characteristic flowers of southern Alaska in June. These were in the same field as the chocolate lilies. I saw a postcard which showed a huge brown bear in a vast field of lupines with mountains in the background. For me, it epitomized Alaska. We saw lupines, bears, mountains, and much more, but we never saw all three at the same time. I suspect that the card was a composite.
