Beautiful find Kathleen, such a shame its endangered because people have picked them instead of leaving them for others to enjoy too :-(

Enjoyed looking up this older spotting of Mountain Ladyslipper and comparing it to my recent spotting of Fairyslipper, both native orchids of BC that are becoming harder to find.
