Today (Monday) is / was a holiday in British Columbia, so I was out photographing. I went up to Thynne Mountain. It had the most prolific wildflower bloom I’ve ever seen in a non-protected area in British Columbia.
I was guessing I might see some uncommon plants near the peak, but the small flat meadows are also an area used by quads, so no such luck. Still, the upper reaches of the mountain were coloured blue, purple, yellow and white with lupines, penstemons, arnicas, and valerians. Noticeably absent were the reds of paintbrushes, which I’ve seen on other peaks in the Cascades range. I spent a bit of time trying to do colour medleys, but since I was photographing in the harsh light of the early afternoon, it was challenging (and not always successful).
