Wildflowers and Mt Adams

Image #10 of my Favorite 12 Images of the Year was the result of persistent scouting. Prior to any workshop we teach, there are endless hours of driving to check on locations that we will use in the workshop with an eye always on alert for a potentially new location. This happened to be the case this past April prior to the start of Gary Hart and my Columbia River Gorge Workshop CLICK HERE. We were driving in Southern Washington scouting the incredible wildflower blooms when we decided to push forward along a dirt road to a ridge. Things began to look really sparse - "just a bit more then we will turn back," we both said. As we reached the ridge, some bright yellow balsamroot flowers caught my eye. Gary pulled over and we walked up the ridgeline where the flowers were and incredibly, this scene opened in front of us. Pristine rolling hills of wildflowers and Mt. Adams in the distance! Without question, our best find of the year!
