(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.)
Lewis, friend of Clark, I suppose?
Right you are. Lots of "lewisii" species resulted from that little trip.
