Another of my favorite native flowers is the lupine. We have several varieties around here and this year they seem to be doing very well, no doubt because of all the rain we received earlier. This particular patch was found as you drop down into Bear Valley. It was taken on last Sunday’s motorcycle trip. I had planned to go back last night with the medium format camera and a tripod but it was cloudy, and today it is raining, so I guess it’ll have to wait.
