False Solomon's Seal

We came upon these white colored wildflowers in June. We were hiking in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains at Rock Creek Lake, Devil’s Postpile to Rainbow Falls, Bodie State Historic Park, Panum Crater and Mono Lake, and over Tioga pass.

Found this on the beach of Mono Lake, but not in any book. I'm not sure whether it is light yellow, pink, or white.

About hermitsdoor

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

      I must stop by your blog to see what the area looks like a month later. We had perfect timing for the wildflowers, with the snow pack melting. Even a few days later, when we flew back home, I noticed that much of the high counry no longer had the snow we saw on our flight in. Enjoy.

  2. That one from Mono Lake blends right in with the rock!
