June 23, 2009
I spotted this plant growing in the grass in a curve along the highway in the higher elevations of the park. Since there was no place to pull over on the curve we had to park 100 yards or so up the highway in a small pull-off and I walked back. It was the only good specimen of this plant that I found, we were still a bit early for any mass blooms.
