As Good As It Gets

A beautiful day to break out the Nikon and take wildflower photos.

The slopes of the Memaloose Hills east of Mosier were alive with color.

Dramatic golds, purples, blues, reds, whites and yellows dotted the landscape.

The warm sunshine brought out the wonderful smells of the rich soils and fragrant flowers.

The floral show was about as good as it gets, at least until the upper alpine meadows clear of snow later in the summer.
