Arctic Sweet Coltsfoot Flowers
Petasites frigidus

We started seeing this species near Baby Bear Lake. I did not recognize it, but it was all bloomed out, so I did not take any pictures. In some of the recently dried snowmelt ponds further back on the ridge, we found some that were still blooming.

Location: Starrigavan Ridge, near Sitka, Alaska
