After we started hiking I saw why we would have to explore the ranch later or on a different day. The wildflowers put on a show for a little fox. The flower that looks like a sunflower is called Balsam Root. I kept thikning of Jerry on this hike since I know he loves flowers.
This is my favorite of the day, it’s such a bright shot of the flowers and you can see the town of The Dalles in the background. I was beary lucky.
This Oak Tree (at least I think it's an Oak) looks so peaceful at the old ranch. I included it just to show a different perspective.
I didn’t even mind making my roommates carry up the hill for a couple hundred feet and a few miles, aren’t I a considerate fox? Now, what is planned for tomorrow?
