"Thriving in Adversity" --- This photo was taken at the summit of Grey Jay Peak, in Alaska's Chugach Mountains.   It always amazes me that mountain flowers can bloom and thrive in the almost barren rocks, surrounded by snow, glaciers, and mountain peaks in every direction! The afternoon this photo was taken, I think I actually rolled my sleeves up for a few minutes while recovering from the climb. Perhaps I was the only visitor to this remote mountain peak all this year, and maybe this was its warmest moment of the summer. It didn't last long. The flowers and I made the most of our sunny interlude! :-)
