This is a naturalist scramble. Probably too early for maximum flower display, but will make effort to find something. The naturalist part of trip is lead by Lynn Graf. Late-breaking info: On 5/13 in this area we found Oregon anemone, smooth douglasia, a couple types of "desert parsley", trillium, glacier lily...and are hoping the expected heatwave will bring out more. Otherwise it is still a very early spring landscape, plenty of snow on the ridge.
