Is this a goldenrod? Thank you for your time.
I would say no, but a better picture, with more detail, would make it easier to say for sure. Also, I don't think goldenrod is blooming now.
I don't know the plant personally but offhand I'd say it looks very similar to Lupinus arboreus, yellow bush lupine.
Absolutely, definitely not Goldenrod.
