CommentsThe summit meadow wildflower display is still 2-3 weeks off, but there are plenty of flowers in bloom.

Forest: Small-Flowered Blue-Eyed Mary (Collinsia parviflora), patches of Rough Wallflower (Erysium asperum) in sunny areas, Nine-leaf Desert Parsley (Lomatium triternatum var. triternatum), Slender Popcorn Flower (Plagiobothrys tenellus), Spotted Coral Root (Corallorhiza maculata), Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana), Small-Flowered Prairie Star (Lithophragma parviflorum), Vanilla Leaf (Achlys triphylla), Hooker's Fairybell (Disporum hookeri), Miner's Lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata), Evergreen Violet (Viola sempervirens), and Fairyslipper (Calypso bulbosa) at higher elevations. Dutchman's Breeches (Dicentra cucullaria) is blooming above the upper trail junction.

Summit Meadows: Northwest Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza deltoidea), Harsh Paintbrush (Castilleja hispida), Upland Larkspur (Delphinium nuttallianum), and Spreading Phlox (Phlox diffusa) are just getting started. However, there are lots of Gold Stars (Crocidium multicaule) and Western Buttercup (Ranunculus occidentalis) to provide splashes of yellow. There is also a patch of Glacier Lily (Erythronium grandiflorum) still in bloom at the summit, as well as a profusion of Western Spring Beauty (Claytonia lanceolata). On the forested route to the summit, there are still many Western Trillium (Trillium ovatum) in peak form, as well as lots of Dutchman's Breeches (Dicentra cucullaria).
