    Could anyone help me ID this wild rose that was growing along the Desolation Peak Trail in the North Cascades National Park in Washington State? It had the most colorful hot pink rose hips.

    Sorbus sitchensis var. grayi for the first and S. scopulina for the second.

    Sorbus are in the same family as roses (Rosaceae); the fruits are pomes (like apples, also same family).
