About Today’s Photo:

Mountain Sandwort is a true alpine flower that grows in Vermont only on our highest summits. It’s in full bloom right now, and there are carpets of it up on the summit of Camel’s Hump. If you go up to take a look, remember to stay on the rocks as the flowers and sedges of our alpine summits are rare and endangered!
