Several years ago Tom’s nephew and his wife were visiting and we discovered beautiful fields of Lupine blooming while driving through the mountains.

Looking for Lupine
Field after field were covered in them,
so since we have a patch of Lupine blooming on our property, I figured that the fields we had found at that time would be beautiful. So yesterday we packed a lunch and off we went.
Along the way things were looking promising,
but when we got to the area where the fields of Lupine were this is what we found. Apparently they were clearing dead timber everywhere on top.Vast forests here in Colorado have been killed by beetles, and it’s a sad sight to see.
