Silky Lupine, predominant east of the Cascade Mountains in pine forest and sage, grows along the Chewuch River near Wintrop, Washington.  An ant descends the stem.  The Chewuch River runs from the Pasayten Wilderness in the North Cascade Mountains toward the Methow River at the village of Winthrop, where the two merge to drain throught the Methow Valley to the mighty Columbia at Lake Pateros.
