Dogtoothed Violet

There is a place I know where the sun can shine bright on a tiny hill in the bottom of a deep canyon and allow the Dogtoothed Violets to bloom earlier there than they do anywhere else around. It seemed appropriate to visit that place today to see this area’s first-blooming lily.

Dogtoothed Violet

AKA: Glacier Lily, Yellow avalanche-lily, Erythronium grandiflorum.
