04/13/2018 Pct Warner Springs to Eagle Rock We needed to check out some plants along the route and added the northern part of the PCT.
A couple of great finds along the route California broomrape, Orobanche californica feudgei and Little redstem monkeyflower, Mimulus rubellus.
We combined the bloom count with the 04/10 hike.
Species in bloom above 3000 feet: 73.

04/12/2018 Salvador canyon south fork The goal was to find Stream orchid, Epipactis gigantea in bloom, first we found plants without any sign of bloom, but a bit further a couple of them in good bloom.
This might be the biggest bunch of them in and close to the park.
We were very pleased to find a blooming female Borrego bedstraw, Galium angustifolium borregoense.
The bad a lot of wind and wind gusts, so that limited the amount of pictures.
Species in bloom below 3000 feet: 73.
