I had hoped to try and climb the mountain twice today and as such, I was on the trail earlier than normal, at 6:50am to be exact.  Since the mountain is closing due to the fire danger, one of the early victims has been the wildflowers, either wilted shortly after blossom or not showing up at all.

This morning in the depths of the La Cueva Canyon, just in front of the cave as a matter of fact, I saw this flower for the first time.  There were only two blossoms but fortunately one of them came out sharp enough at 1/25 of a second.


Its called a Northern Anenome and is a member of the Buttercup family.  It’s also know as a Meadow Anenome or a Windflower.
