North Pacific Alpine and Subalpine Bedrock and Scree

This represents the exposed rock and rubble found above the forest line in the mountain ranges of the northern Pacific Coast. It is comprised of rock outcrops, scree slopes, which are almost always unvegetated, with only sparse cover of wildflowers, grasses, shrubs or small trees, tucked in between the rocks.
