This year, by chance, I finally got it right. On the second day of our trip, we headed to hike up Saddleback Mountain, hoping that we’d encounter some lupines along the way. Along the road, we were disappointed to see that the lupines had past and that their petals had already shriveled. However, as we approached the mountain, we found that they were less and less dead and when we arrived, we were greeted by a sea of purple blooms. We couldn’t have timed it any better! Even as we climbed the mountain, the lupines continued to amaze us. They really did go on forever! Running through the endless lupines felt like something straight from a dream, I can’t get over how stunning they were!
