Plants near Wrights Lake

Here are a few of the plants you may see along the trail from Wrights Lake to Island Lake in late summer (in the Sierra Nevada, west of Lake Tahoe).

Alpine Lily, Lilium parvum

Corn-Lily, Veratrum californicum

Frosted buckwheat, Eriogonum incanum

Mountain fleabane, Erigeron compositus

Large talus next to a meadow: prime Pika habitat.  There was one right there on that rock seconds before I took this picture.
