My buddy Jamie and I have been up Taylor Meadows way twice now. Last time we tackled Black Tusk with Rebecca, but this time we hit Panorama Ridge, which is probably the more spellbinding of the two. (Hey, there's nothing wrong with Black Tusk; it's just that the view from Panorama Ridge actually includes a spectacular view of the Tusk itself.

Along the way, we encountered some lovely late summer foliage, including this odd-looking , down-gazing purple flower. Anyone know its name?
