Just down the road…

Just down the road from where I live is a special place called Table Mountain.  I took off work a couple hours early this afternoon so we could visit with the wild flowers.  

This big old oak tree provides a lot of shade…


Families go there to fly kites because Table Mountain rises quickly from the valley floor and you get wind currents…


The lava cap rocks mix in with beautiful wild flowers….


Fields and fields of beautiful flowers….


In 1848, a town sprung up here, Oregon City, during the Gold Rush. This school is all that remains of that town.


And then the clouds started moving in and I said, “Let’s go eat!”


Clouds and wild flowers, what a blessing!
