Wildflower Walk - Mt. Ashland Ski Bowl 7-23-20

Photos by Darryl and Liz

Stunning does not begin to describe the floral show on the Mt Ashland ski bowl right now.  We stopped, stared, discussed, and hazarded identities for at least a half an hour  -- right out of the cars, before we actually hit the trail.  Darryl, Sunny, Colette, Rich, Sabin, Mary and I were in heaven.  Yes, the Tower delphiniums are there, but there is so much more!

BTW -  by popular demand, we will continue with Wildflower Walks for the foreseeable future.
