South Puyallup Trail, Mt. Rainier N.P. 7/2015.

This fragrant phlox relative, sporting distinctive needle-like leaves, appears to be relatively common in alpine and subalpine areas in much of the western U.S.  It can be found on both the east and west sides of the Cascades.  We found these on the east side of Mt. Rainer, a few years back.
