Purple Colony at Crater Lake
I was hiking through one of the trails on Crater Lake in Oregon when I came upon a colony of bunch grasses that overlooked the beautiful waters. With their purple inflorescence waving in the breeze and the beautiful waters as background, I thought it was a kinda magical sight.
I believe they were Elymus elymoides, a widespread species that doesn't make it that often as an ornamental, but they were gorgeous anyways at the time.
