To Lewis and Clark
Today's photos are in memory of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark who discovered many new plants and animals in an expedition that began around this time of year in 1804. The top photo is Bitterroot, Lewisia sp., which I've only seen on Table Mountain, and the bottom photo is sometimes called Farewell-to-Spring, Clarkia, which is widespread throughout the county. I photographed this one on the road out to Oakland Camp yesterday.
