The Fiery Furnace is a hiking trail for advanced hikers located in Arches National Park. My husband and I A scenic close-up picture of a Washington State wildflower called Foxglove.

This is a pink or purplish wildflower that comes from the Figwort Family and the scientific name of “Digitalis purpurea.” Foxglove is a European invasive that has been rapidly spreading into the Washington backcountry. Look along most lowland roadsides from spring to late summer and you’ll probably see these 2′ to 8′ spires of deep pink. They are long tubelike flowers that grow in rows along the upper portion of the stalk. The leaves are soft green, with a texture almost like wool. Foxglove wildflowers like to grow in disturbed soil at lower elevations.

The name “foxglove” was derived from the shape of the flower and because of their habitat which was commonplace for fox dens.
