Thanks! We spotted a bunch of them coming out of the Owens Valley. You have some really very nice photos on your pages!

Thank you, photography is definitely a passion of mine, along with finding beautiful wildflowers! May I ask where in the Owen's Valley and what month you found these blooming?

This one was May 05 during the big bloom. We found them just north of Red Rock Canyon on Hwy 14/395. I can't remember how far north they extended.
