Of The Klamath Mountains
The Klamath Mountains are vast and encompass many ecological zones and elevations. Geology, ranges in altitude, and variable weather conditions make the region variable for wildflower blooms depending on species and region. Wildflower season can begin as early as mid-December in the lower elevations and continue into late October or even November in the high country.
Late summer wildflowers
The blooms starting in late summer are exciting to see after months of flowers across the mountains. Dry conditions persist in the Klamath Mountains due to the Mediterranean-type climate. While little rain falls all summer wildflowers can still be found in August and September — particularly in the high elevations and along streams and lakes. Get out on a hike in late summer and fall and you will surely find something in bloom in the Klamath Mountains.
What follows are a selection of photographs taken from the high country around Mount Eddy in mid-August 2020. Enjoy!
