Re: Wow!

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

Re: Wow!

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?

Re: Wow!

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.

Not in the Owen's Valley, but growing near Cactus Flats on the San Bernardino NF
