Ahh, the first blooming lupine of the year. These flowers seem to be a constant trail companion, and I was very happy to see them coming back to life.
With the lupine, there were these flowers that I assume are part of the pea family.
There were many more shooting stars blooming in the grass as well.
This area is very peaceful. I heard a lot of birds and frogs. Also the sound of running water as small creeks flow into the lake.
This was a new flower that I've never seen before. (above)
It's good to see all of these old "friends" again...
