PCT Flower Hike - Old 99 Towards Pilot Rock 5-18-18

Sometimes it takes a village to get me headed in the right direction. With help from Dan showing me the way and Alex providing me his list of flower walks, I scouted out a PCT hike with Liz, my flower guru.

The hike was a seven mile out and back off Old Hwy 99 along the PCT towards Pilot Rock. The weather was gorgeous and so was the trail. Absolutely filled with with a fantastic variety of wild flowers. We took our time enjoying and identifying the beautiful array. Just to name some this novice can remember, we saw Trillium both white and pink, Mission Bells ( Chocolate Fritillaria), fields of Jacob's Ladder and Woodland Stars, Butter Cups and wild Strawberries, Fendler's Waterleaf, Fawn lilies and Yellow Leaf Iris, Hooker's Fairybell and Sea Blush, Wild Rose and Serviceberry, Hounds Tongue and a few Scarlet Bells and Coral root . Liz also pointed out a few final Toothworts/Milkmaids, both the tiny Blue Marys and the larger Shirts and Skirts, False Salomon seal and Star saloman seal, Ookow, Larkspur/Delphinium and many flowering shrubs -- red-flowering current, and gooseberry

I will put this flower hike on the schedule for next Friday for all to enjoy.
