If you enjoy unusual flowering plants and are in good condition for an all day hike, then you will want to participate in the Tin Mountain Conservation Center nature program “Alpine Adventure” on Sunday, July 25.  Tin Mountain naturalists will lead a hike into the Alpine Garden via the headwall of Tuckerman’s Ravine in search of alpine flowers in bloom. Known for its winter and spring skiing, Tuckerman’s Ravine is a glacial cirque on the southeast face of Mt. Washington, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The ravine is named after botanist Edward Tuckerman, who studied alpine plants and lichens in the area in the 1830s and 1840s. Some of the plants usually in flower this time of year are the three-toothed cinquefoil, mountain avens, arnica, mountain sandwort, Labrador tea, mountain cranberry, and many others. The descent on the Lion’s Head Trail is steep, but with sure footing it offers panoramic views of Wildcat Mountain and Tuckerman’s Ravine.  For reservations, call Tin Mountain at 603-447-6991. This is a strenuous hike, and the weather changes unexpectedly, so please pack accordingly. Bring a lunch, water and snack. Meet at 7 AM at AMC Pinkham Notch Center parking lot on the south side.
