Lewis’s Monkeyflower

Pink Lewis's Monkeyflower blooming beside a stream a little above the treeline on Mount Rainier.

Strange name, but beautiful flowers. The alpine version is smaller than the description on this US Forest Service site. They seem to like little streams. These photos were taken above the treeline along the Skyline trail near Paradise on Mount Rainier.
