Looks like a nice display of Lewis Monkeyflower

(Mimulus lewisii) This is typical habitat for them: creekbanks and seep slopes in subalpine meadows.

Thanks! Will incorporate your info. Did you mean to say seep or is that a typo?

No typo. It's a term sometimes used by geologists for a damp slope with water seeping. (As we see in so many of the mountain meadows in the North Cascades.)

Right you are. Lots of "lewisii" species resulted from that little trip.
