Gray's Lily

Lilium grayi, one of Grandfather Mountain's endangered plant species, blooming along the Grandfather Trail near Calloway Peak. I had asked about where these flowers would be on the mountain, fully expecting that I would have to come back later this summer to see them. What a surprise to actually find one in bloom already, and right next to the trail!
