Sierra corydalis ๐ŸŽ• Lassen Volcanic National Park ๐ŸŽ• Northern California Wildflowers

The hike to Ridge Lakes (in Lassen Volcanic National Park) was bursting with wildflowers in early August!

where to find wildflowers in northern California

After some digging, I found that these pink beauties are called Sierra corydalis, also known as Brandegee's fumewort. I tell ya, sometimes the names of these flowers just don't do their beauty justice! Should the word "wort" be associated in any way with a flower of any kind? I didn't think so...
