Sorbus sitchensis

Habitat:

Mt Baker Wilderness, Washington State.

Notes:

Historically not eaten by native people but the Nuxalk rubbed the berries on the scalp to combat lice and dandruff. I wonder if it worked?!

Thanks for the ID. I think it is sitchensis.

It looks like either Sorbus sitchensis or Sorbus scopulina.

Does anyone know what these berries are called? They were spotted on a hike in the Mt Baker Wilderness area of Washington, US and it was in the autumn.
