Beautiful Blue Camas

Today’s post features a beautiful blue wildflower growing in the Columbia River Gorge area of Oregon, a blue Camas (species unidentified) wildflower. Early one morning, I crossed the Columbia River to photograph at Catherine’s Creek Nature Area, a wonderful little area on the Washington state side of the river. One of the striking wildflowers at Catherine’s Creek was the brilliant blue Camas. Adding to the view was Mt. Hood in the background (which was soon to be clouded over). Here are some of my favorite images of the Camas wildflowers at Catherine’s Creek:
