Indian Paintbrush and Columbine at American Basin
Marsh Marigold at Govenor's Basin
We were at Govenor's Basin ahead of most of the wildflowers. Marsh Marigold are among the first to appear in high areas as the snow is just melting.
Columbine at Cunningham Gulch
Columbine on a Rocky Slope
Parry's Primrose at Silver Basin
We were also a little bit ahead of the flowers at Silver Basin. This picture was taken a little bit below the basin, along the outlet stream.
Although they appear to be delicate flowers, Columbine grow in some rocky, harsh environments, here at 13,000 feet in California Pass.

Parry's Primrose and Marsh Marigold both like it wet.
Columbine and Lupine
On our way down from Silver Basin, we found that our road was blocked. A fellow had cut down a tree, having it fall in the road. We got out our box lunches and passed the time eating while he cleared the road.
