Lupines at Mount St. Helens
Growing up in Florida you get used to seeing a pretty standard type of landscape. Pine trees with the occasional oak, palmetto bushes and mangroves. Yeah, there are wildflowers, but really, they’re mostly weeds.
Up in the Pacific Northwest, though, it’s completely different. Wildflower takes on an entirely different definition up there. These lupines were growing on the side of a hill at one of the visitor stops on the way up to Mount St. Helens. There are fields of them and the cover the landscape.
That’s one of the cool things about travel, right. Everything is different only a few hours on a plane away.
