Just to follow up Doug Lief's Dog mt report. The top area of balsamroot is now partially open and fully open in the lower part of the upper area. The flower mix up top is gorgeous with the phlox, buttercups,larkspur,paintbrush,blue violets and chocolate lillies putting on a big show. Again this year the Puccoon (lithospermum ruderale) is very nice. Its located near the top just to the east along the trail down through the woods.
We counted a total of 84 flowers making the big loop. The phantom orchids are still not open but lots of striped and spotted coralroot is open.
