Wildflower Hike

1 Comment

We went for a hike up the mountains yesterday to see waterfalls,
and I found some cool wildflowers.

I have never seen this ‘flower’ before.
The first photo is to show its location in a very wet location.

Wild iris are popping up all over – it is their time.
Trillium is not the state flower of Oregon, but many think so.
It is against the law to pick any specimens!
There are a number of wild orchids that can be found in the woods,
I feel I was lucky to spot this one.

Rhododendron grow tall and leggy in the forest,
this is a baby with one stem.
I believe the ground cover is Oregon Grape leaves around it.
Right photo is one of many wild berry flowers.

Here are some waterfalls we visited:

Tokatee Falls and Watson Falls up the North Umpqua River in Oregon.

One thought on “Wildflower Hike

  1. “I have never seen this wild flower before” Really? If you lived in my part of Oregon, you would see entire fields of it. It is “Skunk cabbage” I do not have a botanical name for you. When we first came to Oregon, Mom (recently from Iowa picked some and brought it into the house and quickly learned how it got it’s name.
