|South Sister from the south|
Here's my collection of fauna from my trip to the top of South Sister in Oregon. I didn't have a lot of time to take pictures of wildflowers and plants along the way as the hike was a long one and we had limited time.
Enjoy the pictures. The plants pictured below were very common along the trail. These plants are only a few of the vast amount of fauna around South Sister.
