Dalles Mountain Flower Garden

This is a horizontal view of the previous vertical comp of the same scene. You can see how the surrounding hills have no wildflowers on them. Here's a shot taken in the opposite direction.

I've been asked about where I went to find the flowers. Many are going there and seeing very few of them. This is a good patch up the road past the farm house. It's right off of the road and easy to get to. To get the shot and make it look like the hillside is covered I got down on the dirt with the ticks and communed with the flowers.

 

The weather is supposed to be improving, so I hope that it will prompt the flowers to bloom... as long as it doesn't snow again. :)

 

It's finally Friday. :) Go out and take pictures this weekend. :)
