June 28, 2016
Yesterday after completing several things that have kept me from the trails lately (and pretty much away from the blog), I leisurely hiked the first mile of the Spring Creek trail (USFS trail #370), retreating from things that had been pressing and enjoying the deep shade of the canyon which was much cooler than the rather high temperatures in the valley. It was wonderful to see the wildflowers and gratifying to see so many species still in bloom.
Oxeye Daisy ~ Leucanthemum vulgare
Water Speedwell, Blue Speedwell ~ Veronica anagallis-aquatica
Pointedtip Mariposa Lily, Three-spot Mariposa Lily, Baker’s Mariposa ~ Calochortus apiculatus

Alaska rein orchid, slender-spire orchid ~ Piperia unalascensis
