CommentsThe most prevalent bloomers are Pungent Desert Parsley (Lomatium grayi) and Smooth Prairie Star (Lithophragma glabrum). There are still a few Grass Widows (Olsynium douglasii), but they are mostly finished for the season.

Other wildflowers currently blooming include: Small-Flowered Blue-Eyed Mary (Collinsia parviflora); Yellow Bells (Fritillaria pudica); Columbia Gorge Desert Parsley (Lomatium columbianum) especially at higher elevations in the Labyrinth; Oregon Saxifrage (Saxifraga oregana); Western Saxifrage (Saxifraga occidentalis); Northwestern Saxifrage (Saxifraga integrifolia); Rigid Fiddleneck (Rigid Fiddleneck (Amsinckia retrorsa); Naked Broomrape (Orobanche uniflora) including a profusion along the old road and just above the Labyrinth waterfall; Popcorn Flower (Plagiobothrys sp.); Poet`s Shooting Star (Dodecatheon poeticum); Gold Stars (Crocidium multicaule) including an impressive profusion next to the trail in the Labyrinth; Western Buttercup (Ranunculus occidentalis) especially in the Labyrinth; Oaks Toothwort (Cardamine nuttallii var. nuttallii); Ballhead Waterleaf (Hydrophyllum capitatum var. capitatum); Two-Colored Lupine (Lupinus bicolor); Miner`s Lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata); Bigroot (Marah oreganus), some Upland Larkspur (Delphinium nuttallianum) in the Labyrinth; some Chickweed Monkeyflower (Mimulus alsinoides) on rocky areas; amd a few patches of Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza sp.) starting at lower elevations.

Yellow Bells are especially profuse at higher elevations, e.g., near the junction of Atwood Road and Old Ranch Road, and continue along the Old Ranch Road trail as it descends. Also blooming in the wooded areas at higher elevations are Glacier Lilies (Erythronium grandiflorum).

Bitterroot (Lewisia rediviva) rosettes are visible on many rocky areas and should be blooming in late April / early May.
