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.
