I arose early Wednesday morning for the dawning light and returned to an area of colorful wildflowers. It was a cloudy morning, but the filtered sunlight intensified the colors. I was struck how these pockets of wildflowers could still thrive despite the drought conditions that had limited blossoming in other areas of the canyon. May each of us find our own micro climates to continue to grow in!
And, so after breakfast, we packed up and returned down to the river and out to the trailhead. Flowers may fade, but memories endure! And more adventures will Raz and Wallowa llamas await in this Hells Canyon Wilderness.
