On the way back from our Eastern Sierra vacation, we made our way over Highway 108 in the late afternoon. Coming around one corner we were stunned by this meadow of lupine in full bloom. We were surprised to see lupine in bloom several months after it has disappeared in our coastal climate. I was able to get a few pictures before my batteries in the camera, and since I had earlier toasted my backup set trying to charge them while we were driving, I had no more rechargeables to use. We went back the next day with everything recharged hoping to take more pictures. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find the spot again, even though it was so obvious the first time. Very frustrating, but at least the few pictures that I did get turned out very nice.
