Every now and then I come across a new plant I haven't seen before and have trouble identifying. With some help from some folks on another forum I've got this one figured out. I saw it between The Lip and The Bowl on the way down Tuckerman Ravine Trail on Saturday.
Woodland angelica Angelica sylvestris
Apparently it can cure whatever ails you, and makes good liqueur, too!
The flies sure loved it! I guess they were inebriated.
