The Feather River Canyon is blooming brilliantly RIGHT NOW! It's really the perfect time to make the drive.

Lupines are lining the highway throughout the whole canyon! This shot was taken yesterday at Rock Creek.

Gorgeous peach-colored Bush Monkey Flowers are also everywhere in the canyon!

Here are some growing out of the granite walls, along with some Indian Paintbrush.

                                                           Beckwith Violet
Thank you Monica Quinones for taking your pups out for a hike in Clio this week and capturing some great shots of Beckwith Violets!

  Mike Nellor says this Wood Anemone is possibly his favorite flower. He says they're "smaller than a dime and only bloom for a couple of days and I've only seen them in one spot," which is near Slate Creek.
Thank you Mike, for also sharing these lovely shots
of yellow lupines, also near Slate Creek.

Along the Cascade Trail just outside of Quincy, the Shooting Stars are beginning their lovely spring display. Thank you Carol Miles for this nice shot. (right)
