To Be Scrapped...Wildflowers

The wildflowers were certainly plentiful on our hike yesterday to Emigrant Lake, and so today's hike was purposefully to see how the flowers were coming along on the hill up to Caples Crest.

We were not disappointed!

Although the flowers were of the earlier variety, and there are plenty more to come in the coming weeks, we were rewarded with hillsides full of the lovely yellow daisy-like flowers of the arrowroot.

Indian paintbrush was also getting going on the hill:

I am already looking forward to a return in a few weeks to check on the lupines!
