Chasing spring: Beautiful weather, flowers at Mount Judah Loop Trail - Auburn JournalWednesday, August 17, 2016
I would have to tell you about the magnificent views, and the profusion of wildflowers, not to mention the snow I found there.
It was worth the hour drive up Interstate 80 heading east to the Soda Springs exit. Stay right off the freeway up Donner Pass Road. Pass Sugar Bowl Road and a couple hundred yards past the Sugar Bowl parking area you will see a small cluster of buildings that was the Sugar Bowl Academy. Turn right in the parking area and travel to the right down the narrow road that leads to the trailhead to park. At the trailhead you will find a map with several local trails and landmarks. In the bottom right of the map you will find the Mount Judah Loop Trail.
The start of the trail is decomposed granite and was nearly overwhelmed everywhere I turned with spring growth in a variety of rich greens, topped with red, orange, pink, purple, yellow, and white flowers.
The climb begins quickly up switchbacks of granite steps, and is exposed to the sun in many areas.
The trail does level out in a forest of pines, aspen, and alder overlooking Lake Mary. I expected to see plenty of mule’s ear in bloom but I was thrilled to see so much more.
Deeper into the trail I felt transported to a jungle filled with such a variety of thick greenery I found myself taking pictures of every plant as each seeme... http://www.auburnjournal.com/article/8/15/16/chasing-spring-beautiful-weather-flowers-mount-judah-loop-trail

Agassiz florist asking community for help - Agassiz-Harrison ObserverTuesday, March 19, 2019
Lance fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning her own flower shop when she opened Holly Tree Florists and Gifts in Agassiz nearly twenty years ago. The shop – which moved from Cheam Avenue to Pioneer in 2002 – is well-known by locals, as is the aging yellow pickup truck Lance uses to deliver flower orders.But after nineteen years of bringing floral arrangements and bouquets to her community, the 72-year-old is asking locals for their support.Right before Mother’s Day, Lance underwent a bilateral femoral endarterectomy surgery – the removal of plaque from the femoral artery. Her recovery time was going to cut into profits during one of the busiest times of the year, so a fellow florist based in Mission, Tami Klassen, started a GoFundMe page to help her.“The floral industry is something people do because they love it and they’re passionate about it,” said Klassen. “Cash flow isn’t always that great in the [industry.] When good seasons come they will often cover you through to the next event.”“If you miss out on one event it can really hurt your cash flow... https://www.agassizharrisonobserver.com/news/agassiz-florist-asking-community-for-help/
