We take a short break from Sakura to explore a bit closer to home.

As you may remember, two years ago, Daniel and I hiked up Silver Star Mountain in southwest Washington State, USA. It was mid-July and much of the Beargrass on the lower reaches of the mountain had bloomed and dried up. I was determined to return in two years (the flowers bloom every two years) and see what I could find. However, this year, I went in mid-June.

This shot is from the area where many dried flower stalks were located on the earlier visit. The profusion of flowers I hoped for did not materialize. But, it was a beautiful day so on up I went. That's Mt. Hood in the distance.
