Wild Lilies

In early Spring I decided to drive to Government Camp on Mt. Hood.

It was mostly a cloudy day, but the summit of Mt. Hood peaked out from time to time.

Trillium (wild Lily)

As anticipated, there was still a lot of snow at Government Camp and higher up on the mountain.

Several days later found me in the lower reaches of the eastern slopes of the Coastal Mountains.

Many wildflowers were beginning to bloom including sweet colt’s foot. But, to my delight, I found a few trilliums in bloom too. They are a sure sign of spring.
