On top of Mt Lemmon, with flowers in bloom

Dateline 16 June 2016

I was hiking the Aspen-Marshall loop with a couple of friends that were on the move, so I didn’t catch as many flowers as sometimes. Still it was an interesting assortment – the New Mexico locust was very visible everywhere on the sunny slopes. I saw an amazing “dandelion” for lack of a better descriptor; it was huge as you can see and I don’t know its name. I’m not certain I’m ready to switch to treacleberry for false Solomon’s seal. On the other hand I there’s got to be a better name, one that doesn’t start with “false.”¬† The ferns and water-loving plants were flourishing by the stream-side.
