Oregon is already acclaimed for its mountain ranges, emerald valleys, sparkling rivers and lakes, and rugged deserts. In late spring and early summer, wildflowers spread brilliant pinks, purples, reds, yellows, oranges and blues across these different landscapes, creating na even more enchanting Oregon. We found photographers who were able to capture the beauty and diversity of Oregon wildflowers, from the well-known lupine to the more elusive mariposa lily, in the different regions they grow – high alpine meadows and ghostly burn areas to desert plateaus and coastal cliffs.
