Many of us enjoy photographing flowers, but not many know exactly what they are called or how to identify them. After a while it gets annoying have label a photo as "pretty yellow flower" or "fluffy white wildflower." Fortunately there are a number of good to excellent sites on the internet to help with identification.

MyWildflowers.com offers one of the easiest advanced search tools: http://www.mywildflowers.com/identify.asp

Healthy Home Gardening also has a fairly easy search tool: http://healthyhomegardening.com/Plant_Identifier.php?m1=3

The USDA site: http://plants.usda.gov/java/

The Better Homes & Garden Plant Encyclopedia: http://www.bhg.com/gardening/plant-dictionary/

Burke Museum of Natural History & Culture: http://biology.burke.washington.edu/herbarium/imagecollection.php?Page=plantkey.php

World Wide Flowering Plant Identification: http://www.colby.edu/info.tech/BI211/PlantFamilyID.html

      If you would like to see more of my photos, here is the link to my flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/songdogstudios/albums
      Otherwise, I thought I'd post a couple here, for fun. The last two are from my phone, but still show a bit of some adventures.

      Hello, all. I am new here, so this is my obligatory first post. I live in Oregon and have been an explorer and mountaineer most of my life. However, in recent years, I haven't had as much time as I would like to get out there on multi-day adventures, and have been limited to day trips around the PDX region. I am always looking to hear about any abandoned mines, ghost town updates, and abandoned buildings to photograph. I have been a rockhound most of my life, but only recently decided to add precious metals (namely gold) to my list of things to prospect for. Of course, I don't expect anyone to share their spots, but if anyone has any useful info in this regard, I'd love to hear it. I am hoping to make adventuring a more regular thing, including blogging my trips reports (which I intend to crosspost here). 
      I am also beginning my search for a better adventure vehicle, so am looking for suggestions there, as well. I have a knack for getting small cars into places they should not be (and even getting them back out again), but am definitely looking for something more rugged for my next purchase (I have experience with Subaru, Toyota, and Jeep, but it's been a number of years since I had anything with 4WD). 
      My dogs go with me everywhere, so they get their own intro. Mesa is the australian shepherd and D'Argo is the belgian malinois. Both are in training for scent work (mantrailing, nosework, and truffle/antler hunting) and backpacking, and D'argo is also learning to be my primary method of defense (the secondary being a gun, of course).
