Saddle Mountain 6/23/2017 (#34)
Saddle Mountain is in the coast range, so has slightly different suite of flowers than what we see in the Gorge or Cascades. We have hiked Saddle Mountain in different seasons, and today we expected a mid-wildflower season bloom. I found 66 different flowers that I could name, a new maximum for this year. The trail switchbacks through both forest and open meadow slopes and cliffs, 5 miles round trip and 1600 feet elevation.
Some of the wildflowers that stood out to me:
Sneak peak at my Jane Austen tribute quilt using Smithsonian reproduction fabrics, many years in the making, and now basted and ready for quilting.
Crazy eights dishcloth (pattern by Julie Tarsh, Ravelry), made from kitchen cotton. The second photo is a compressed version of the picture in my quest for better blog photos.
