Up in the Mountains

I recently got the chance to go with members from the San Gabriel Mountains Chapter to their study site in none other than the San Gabriel Mountains. It was wonderful, everything was blooming and the views were lovely. Volunteers visit the site at least once a week and record what is blooming. This is a great project. Thanks for letting me join.
The small and beautiful, Mimulus johnstonii- Johnston's monkeyflower, rank 4.3
I finally got to see it! The Lemon lily, Lilium parryi, rank 1B.2

And also Oreonana vestita, Woolly Mountainparsley, rank 1B.3 was there, past blooming and fruit, but still interesting. It only likes high elevations.
