La Grande OR: Crossing the Blue Mountains on I-84 I noticed scraps of snow roadside. Elevation at the crest is 4, 193 feet. Summit road exits about 12 miles from La Grande and leads the way into some of the finest wildflower territory in Oregon. This day the road was closed about a mile and a half from the freeway because of snow. Snow mobiles only… a park permit is necessary until April 30th. I’ll try again later.
These two lichens growing on a dead pine limb caught my eye.
