The weekend has arrived! We are hoping for nicer weather but as always this time of year there's a chance for rain, especially in the afternoon. We had 1.82" of rain yesterday. There were some nice showers in the afternoon and a huge downpour around sunset. We reached an amazing 70 degrees yesterday and only dropped into the 50s overnight.
One of my favorite flowers on the mountain, the Turks Cap Lily
Just as I was about to snap this shot a bumblebee flew into the prominent purple Monk's Hood flower facing me. It's hard to tell in this shot but the darker area is him!
