Here’s another one I had lying around – sunrise on Mt. Wilson last summer. This was taken from Mountain Village, outside of Telluride, CO. I don’t like that you can see roads and stuff in the picture, but whatever, I’m not going to take them out.

Hey, lookie here, this is the 5th post this week! I actually did it – I actually posted one picture here per day on, umm, the picture of the day. I think I deserve a pretty serious pat on the back for that one. Also, I’ll probably over-compensate now by not posting anything else for a month and a half. Hmm.
These are lupine flowers. You see them a bunch up in the mountains here in Washington. That’s an ant. You see them a bunch just about everywhere in the world I’ve ever been. Okay, that’s all I’ve got.

Man, I still haven’t gotten out to take a picture in just about forever now. The motivation just isn’t there, and on top of that the weather has been pretty much crap for as long as I can remember. So, I’m still just tossing out pics from the archive, random stuff from years past. Here’s one from near Steamboat Springs, Colorado, from the trail that goes to the top of Hahn’s Peak. Some nice yellow flowers I guess, as the trail approached treeline. A reasonable trail, if you find yourself in the area. If not, well, I guess you’ll just have to find another trail to hike.

Let’s go with this one today. It’s (yet another) bee with (yet another) flower. But it’s Wednesday, and this makes me 3 for 3. I think these are lavender flowers or something? Hmm, whatever, not important. They’re nice enough to look at.

So, today’s post wraps up the month of April. Another month, come and gone. Man, I should have something poignant to say about that.
This is (I think, although I haven’t verified) the last weekend of this year’s Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. they bloomed late this year, so I’m sure it’ll be fantastic up there. (And, the tulips will probably last past this weekend, but I don’t know what the deal is after the festival officially ends.) I was up there earlier this month, right after they started blooming. As you can see, a lot of them hadn’t opened up all the way yet (and there were a lot of steps that were still totally green.) So, I think I’d recommend heading up there later in the bloom cycle (like, say, *now*) as opposed to hitting it at the beginning. But, take what you can get I guess. The weather’s looking good this weekend though, so if you haven’t made it out there yet, just freakin’ go!
