Letter: Don’t trample wildflowers

As a new resident of Clark County, I was joyful to discover the beautiful field of wildflowers at Clark College along East McLoughlin Boulevard. So first and foremost a heartfelt thank you to all involved in this endeavor.

One note from someone who loves the beauty nature gives us in flowers and hiked among them back in Montana whenever I was able to get out — while I understand why someone would like to have a picture taken standing among the astonishing display of beauty of the dazzling poppies and many other varieties, I will never understand why there are those who feel they must trample on beauty.
