Wow! Golden balsamroot covering the southern and eastern-facing slopes of the Memaloose Hills west of Mosier.
Bees, butterflies and colorful wildflowers too plentiful and varied to count. Dramatic purples, blues, reds, whites and yellows dotted the landscape.
The warm sunshine brought out the wonderful smells of the rich soils and fragrant flowers.
We truly enjoyed the outing, commenting to each other that the floral show was about as good as we’ve seen.
I hope the photographs capture a semblance of the beauty of the day.
