Not-quite-Canadian Rockies edible plants: what's the best reference?
August 24, 2008 6:30 PM Subscribe
I'm going backpacking for a couple of weeks in the Beartooth mountains next summer. I'll be above the tree line most of the time. I'd like to have some local herbs and greens to make trail food more palatable. Is the flora described in Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Rockies going to be the right stuff for this trip? Is there another pack-reference which will better describe this biome?

Feel free to recommend whatever plant reference you've had good experience with in this area of the country.
