Cedar Forest Road wildflowers

When you miss the caravan for the cedar glade field trip and try to find it on your own and no one at headquarters knows where the van was headed and you drive and drive where the brochure said it might be, but eventually give up and turn around.
And then,
when you start to notice what’s on the side of the road:
