Tom McCall Wildflowers?

Return to Message Board

Has anyone been up to the Tom McCall Preserve in the Gorge lately? I'd like to head up one of these next weekends, but would like to know if the wildflowers are in bloom yet.

Just ran out to Tom McCall...the flowers are quite nice right now. Tons of Balsamroot, and some of the Lupine looks like its blooming, maybe another week or so until it peaks.
It seems that most years, the wildflowers peak in mid to late April. Who knows though, with the warmer weather we had earlier this year, they may be blooming early.
I drove through about two weeks ago, and noticed some Balsamroot blooming near there, but it didn't look as though they had really taken off just yet. I'm guessing it will probably be early April before they peak.
