Little Pilot Peak 6-8-19

Wildflower Reference Photos

What a difference a day makes.  Unlike Francie, who recorded snow on the Liittle Pilot Peak trail on Friday, Denise and I had a lovely Wildflower Walk Saturday, cool but sunny, and loaded with flowers. So many flowers, most of which I had not seen before --a very good educational day. 

No wonder Cascade-Siskiyou Monument is celebrated for its diversity!  And, topped off by a slope of flowering western peonies, what is not to like?  By the way, the corn lilies are poised to put on quite a show when they finally unfurl.  We ran out of batteries to photograph all the flowers, but the ones below are a good selection.

Cheers,
Liz
