On a hike near Mt Rainier this week, I spotted this dense clump of what I later learned was Jacob’s Ladder flowering on a cliff face. While looking up the flower type, I learned that it is a member of the phlox family of plants. Dr. Phlox happens to be one of my favorite characters from the Star Trek universe.
