In the Pink...

Not sure of the exact variety, but these beautiful pink Monkeyflowers were all over the Tioga Pass and other Sierra locations at higher elevations. And they're HUGE (just over an inch wide) compared to many other smaller kinds. Definitely NOT "belly flowers." LOL... I'll try to do some research, but if anyone knows specifically what these are, please let me know. Otherwise, enjoy! Thanks! (UPDATE! Thanks to Philip (OutdoorPDK) and Mark Egger, for identifying these as Lewis' Monkeyflowers mimulus lewisii).

 

Please come follow my latest endeavor, the Wildflower Conservancy. You'll find lots of helpful information as well as reports from recent wildflower sightings. Thank you!
