Teased by fireweed

The fireweed is taunting me. Everywhere I go I seem to miss the fireweed. In Churchill I left a few weeks before the spectacle of vast areas of flowering fireweed began. I did manage to spot one almost in flower. In Fernie they were just about to start flowering too. And at Cathedral lakes I spotted a few in flower yesterday (my last day) as I hiked the Diamond trail. Once again there were large patches of fireweed with the buds ready to flower in the next few days. I really would have loved to see the mass of pink flowers. But you can't see everything!
