Cow parsnip
Heracleum lanatum

This large flower, which I found blooming at the Russian Orthodox church in Ninilchik, was a plant that we learned to avoid on our hikes. It has irritating hairs that can cause severe rashes and photosensitivity. Cow Parsnip grew everywhere that we visited in Alaska! The plant can grow to be over 5 feet tall!
