Desert Mariposa Lily

This Lily is also known as Straggling, Trailing or Winding Mariposa.
There were quite a few of them en route into Juniper Canyon in April 2008.
Red Rocks, Nevada.

Desert Mariposa Lily (Calochortus kennedyi) can be found in the Mojave and Sonoran deserts up to 6,500 feet. They come in many colors, but in Red Rocks you will only find white, pinkish and lilac ones.
