Mount Ellis Hike | A Field of Wildflowers

 

Last week my friend Charla and I headed up into the forest for some epic wild flowers. We've had a very rain spring which was a bummer but at least that means pretty flowers and less wild fires... so far!

The flowers were just so BEAUTIFUL! We had hiked to Lava Lake the day before so we took our time and didn't go too far up the trail. I think we and the puppies were all very tired. Also I get SO many compliments on my shoes pictured above. They can be found here. I would HIGHLY recommend them. They are definitely one of my favorite pairs of shoes.

It was such a fun day. You can't tell much from the photos but it was pretty hot. After the hike we went back to my friend's house, drank some beer, and chatted. Her husband brews his own beer which is really neat!
