Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, July 7, 2010 1B REGIO0000AL u:t A wildflou' 'r tour a00ross the county Child's Meadow, just over the Plumas County line in Tehama, had flowers of different kinds in one meadow after another. Here yellow wildflowers and daisies blend with native grasses to show- case Lassen Peak. Jlumas County is having a spec- tacular wildflower season, and given that we go up and down in elevation, the season is exceptionally long.-- if you are willing to drive to your favorite flower. In addittontoan abu.ndant s,ully of -  flowers, part of the exuberance of early summer is water running freely and abun- dantly and the many shades of greens that exist at no other time of year. But don't wait to look about you; the dry season will be here before we know it. Lupines (mixed with poppies and the occasional pocket of daisies, above) grew as far as one could see in all directions at the junction of Highway 89 and Gold Lake Road, outside of Graeagle. Snow plants were particularly abundant this spring at Lake AImanor. Since these blood-red plants follow the snowmelt, one only has to go a little higher to see them still. Photos by Diana Jorgenson This large group of poppies was photographed just outside of Greenville. A week later, state and county roads were rimmed with an exuberance of California poppies, our state flower. a These twin waterfalls are on the way to the Lassen National Park Visitors Center, which is open, although few roads in the park are clear of snow. Right now, all mountain waterfalls are spectacular while melting snow feeds them. Salmon Creek in the Lakes Basin is at its glory during spring melt, which came late this year and is still happening at higher elevations. Salmon Creek is near the southern end of Gold Lake Road.
