A few years ago, I hiked up this hilltop near my home and was struck by the abundance and density of these vibrant purple flowers. I had never seen them before and have never since seen so many clustered in one place. I made a note of the time of year – late June and early July. On the following year, I returned around the same time for the same wonderful display. Later that year I returned in the fall (without the flowers) to capture the sunrise. You can see those photos here. Just a few days ago, I returned again, this time to capture the sage and sunrise.
