Hiked with a couple of pals, checked out the waterfall. It is dry now. The reason it runs so nicely earlier in the season is because they run the irrigation water down through that draw from up above, from Ellis Wiltbank Reservoir. Saw four antelope including a showy male with pretty big horns.

They have been irrigating all around the ranch since March, and the grass is green. Contrasting with this green is the bluish lavender color of thousands of blue flag irises. It really was pretty out there today. Big puffy clouds in the blue sky. We hiked about 5 miles or so. Yes, once again, (I'm editing here) that flower is called BLUE FLAG IRIS.
