Taylor Creek flows into Lake Tahoe on the western shore. On this morning the lupine can been seen in full bloom on the opposite side of the river.
In a field of yellow Coreopsis, these bluish purple blooms of larkspur stood out to me. Vibrant against all the yellows surrounding it. Equally stunning and beautiful, standing out in the crowd.
We started our descent down the mountain. The weather heading down was intermittent rain and then the sun. The moments of light brighten up these these high mountain wildflowers. Most of the blooms were spent but they still had enough color to pop into view along the trail.
