JTM: "You are busted G.C.M."







In what way Maid?????
Just because I USED to work for the guy who owns that truck.
Him and I have been friends for a long time, and He has
told me ALL about you and your mischieveous ways.

I look forward to meeting you one of these days.

Bob -
I love your flower photos! Keep them coming!

I have to hand it to Stich for putting up with a lot of flower pics on many a climbing adventure! He's been a really good sport about it.

That will teach me to READ the posts more carefully!

We climbed past a great many Sky Pilots on Middle Pal a few weeks ago, and I like this shot (forgive the repost if you tuned into the Random TRs thread) with the climber in the background.


If you have never come across Sky Pilots, you need to do a High Sierra face in July sometime just for the scent of these fragile beauties.

Bob, great photos! No apology needed. This thread is not exactly a TR, but so close that no one could possibly mind. If you can't stop and smell the (wild) roses, and all of the other lovelies of nature, you should not be out on the crag!

One minor complaint: if you know the flower's name, please give it. I know the first one: wallflower. A real beauty. You can easily see them as you drive into Yosemite on 120, from about May thru June, you see them on the right side of the road, just past the summit and down to the first tunnel. Real stunners, in gold. They are standing about 12" tall, and so gold that they stand out like crazy against the backdrop of pines and flower dogwoods. They stay in bloom for a long time, as succeeding higher levels on the stem burst into bloom.

How about some other flower names?

Jerry D, your photos are always killer, but a few of these seem a bit pixelated. Are you posting them in lower filesize? Thanks, still remember your killer shot of the young lady in the waterfall. Artful and yet stimulating...I see that the Cow Parsnip was at the mouth of the Russian River. I run the nature program for a kids music camp on Austin Creek, just about 4 miles up from the mouth of the Russian: http://www.davidlnelson.md/Cazadero/CazaderoIndex.htm

CF: your flower is a Tiger Lily, almost always found in a year-round seep. Was yours?

GMO: the orange one is, as we all know, the Ca Poppy, but what are the blue ones? Great translucency, with the photo angle from below. Nice.

Bob, your post just above said "shooting stars". Where you answering the question in my previous post, or is that the name of the flower in your post? Are you sure about your ID? In my experience, the shooting star in California is like this one: http://www.wildnatureimages.com/Frigid_shooting_star.htm. It is quite common, so it is in all the flower books.

Beautiful by any name, but knowing the name helps the faulty memory...
