I was returning from somewhere and decided to fly over our house and look for the wildflower meadow and my wife and I sometimes run past in the spring. It is a natural “lava cap” meadow that has only a few inches of topsoil over ancient lava, which prevents larger plants from growing but which supports some nice wildflowers in the spring.
What I found from the air was a much larger meadow, only three miles from our house! A secret meadow that at least none of our neighbors knew about, and I’m sure very few others.
I circled and spotted a pile of large rocks sitting next to a dirt road I knew of, and immediately upon landing drove out and found the pile of rocks, and shortly found the meadow (I could have created a GPS way point, but I was already circling and this seemed easier).
These photos are from that meadow. The last photo isn’t – but I like it.
