    I remember another very wet and sunny hill where dodecatheons were very happy.
    I loved seeing your polemonium, larkspur, Jim in the tree and all the beautiful
    places in bloom with their multicolored communities.

    Tanya, Youngs Rock is indeed suited for the “young”. Our last visit was in May 2016 and before that June 2007. I don’t remember thinking the trail was that steep in the past and it was obvious from our previous photos that we did ‘scale” some heights. Not this time.

    This year, a couple of days before Solstice, 6/18/24, we encountered a new suite of blooms than our 2 previous trips. Notably the extensive blooming of Madia elegans and Calochortus tolmiei blanketing the open grassy meadows. We had never experienced that many Calochortus in one place. We are assuming identification on these 2 species, please correct if we are inaccurate.

    The treasures were along the forested part of the trail with lovely hidden clusters of Corallorhiza maculata (spotted coralroot), one Cephalanthera austiniae (phantom orchid), and an interesting “wintergreen” in bud, no leaves. Possibly Pyrola aphylla (leafless wintergreen) from my search on Oregon Flora. A bit concerned about how close some of these were to the trail and the mountain bike use that could easily squish these plants. There was nobody on the trail when we were there.

    From the “cliffs” we spotted many blooms of Penstemon rupicola and heard the call of a Peregrine falcon.
