It’s not always bad to have “the blues”.

There were a couple of rainy hours available just before dinner today and I decided to spend them searching for a favorite wildflower, the Tolmie Star Tulip. It is still a little early in the season for them, but at the lower end of Munson Creek I was able to find three in bloom (photos in the next post). Just as I returned to the trailhead the rain stopped, a few rays of sun appeared and with them a visit from this little guy who has his own version of “the blues”.
