Wildflowers.Chantry Island. ID Needed! Aug/09

the second flower seen here is the Pale Smartweed (Polygonum persicaria)...but the first one I am not sure of...and I would appreciate some help in identifying it.

To me it looks like a yellow version of blue chicory.

The flowers are very small...about 1cm in diameter.


According to my Peterson wildflower best guess is: Prickly alien, (Lactuca scariola )...or perhaps: Smooth Hawksbeard (Crepis capilaris). The leaves are shown below.IDPlease will be greatly appreciated.
