Sonora Pass Wildflowers 7/16/18

We drove home over Sonora Pass. Smoke was starting to come in but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the wildflowers at the top of the pass. The area above 9300 feet and right near the pass had very good wildflowers. Some nice displays and lots of species. In bloom around the pass were Leichtlin’s Mariposa Tulip, Sulphur Buckwheat, Paintbrush, Mule’s Ear, Scarlet Gilia, three species of lupine, Coyote-Mint, Arnica, Western Blue Flax, Western Columbine, Western Wallflower,  and Pincushion Plant. Just west of the pass are Corn Lily,  Western Bistort, Stickweed, Cinquefoil, and a small lupine.
