In spring, "the snow-crowned mountains rule over an enchanting land of foliage, ferns and fungi, and the alpine meadows are ablaze with bright-hued flowers that grow luxuriantly beneath the broad blue tent of the sky. From the mountains of the Yukon and Alaska to the hills of Nova Scotia and New England, in the Rockies, the Selkirks and the mountain ranges of Montana, Dakota, Washington, Oregon, California and the other States, you will find that the same miracle has been wrought. On the lower levels white-flowered scarlet-fruited shrubs mingle with the Wintergreens, Larkspurs, Violets and Columbines; flaming Indian Paint Brushes, Gentians, Queen-cups and purple Vetches cover many a slope ---."
