Kalamalka Lake Flowers and Trees

I arrived at Kalamalka Lake in May just before the bulk of the wildflowers had really started to flower but there were some Lupines (Lupinus arcticus) in bloom and the invasive species Toadflax (Linaria vulgaris) mixed in amongst the grasses.

First photo here is a lone Ponderosa Pine (Pinus ponderosa) that is unaffected by the Mountain Pine Beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) outbreak rampant in the interior of British Columbia.
