Beargrass, a Wildflower


Here in the Oregon Cascade Mountains, there are large high elevation meadows that are covered with Beargrass. The very first time I saw a large meadow such as this one covered with the flowers...I was awestruck. Spring has once again come to the high elevations, and the wild rhododendron is blooming. Soon, all the wildflowers will be out...for about 6 weeks. It is beautiful to see...if you can handle the biting insects. Truly amazing!
