Table Mountain, Part 6

Beginning with March 14, the day my son and I aimlessly hiked 15 miles on Table Mountain, I posted wildflower photos from that hike over a stretch of 5 days.  Today, reviewing the archives, I realized there's one plant I overlooked.  One of my favorites, now called Fringepod, I used to call it Lacepod when I was first learning Sierra wildflowers back in the 60s.  It's a member of the mustard family, and the tiny flowers are not spectacular to look at, at least not without a hand lens.  But the seed pods are special.  Click on this photo for a closer look and you'll see what I mean.
