Carson Pass Wildflowers 7/11/15

Report and photos submitted by Bruce Beyaert

Carson Pass area this past week. The slopes are green and rampant with flowering plants now between Carson Pass and Kirkwood where we rented a condo for a week. It’s  absolutely amazing, including virtually all of the corn lillies blooming and Swertia plants blooming in abundance like we’ve never seen. It may be due to summer afternoon rains or low snow pack or ??. At any rate, the Sierra plants have no idea that we humans consider this to be a drought.

Here are suggstions for great flower displays:

1. Kirkwood Scout’s Route to Upper Corral Meadow Trail and return via Lower Corral Meadow Trail
2. Schneider’s Camp to Meiss Ridge and north along ridge for Tahoe view
3. Wood’s Lake to Lake Winnemucca.
