Wildflower Report for Ruckel Creek Trail

LocationRuckel Creek Trail
ReporterRory Nichols
CommentsHiked up 1.5 miles short of Benson Plateau when my whining became too much for my friend to bear. We were told there was snow on the plateau. Trail had Nuttall's toothwort (Cardamine nuttallii), western trillium (Trillium ovatum), Columbia kittentails (Synthyris missurica), and others in forested areas. Higher up in the moss-covered rocky outcrops were glacier lily (Erythronium grandiflorum), blue-eyed mary (Collinsia sp.), prairie-star (Lithophragma sp.), chickweed monkeyflower (Mimulus alsinoides), and checker lily (Fritillaria affinis) in bloom.
