As with other locations in the eastern Gorge, the Northwestern Balsamroot <I>(Balsamorhiza deltoidea)</I> has started blooming, well ahead of schedule. I estimate that it will be at peak in 2-3 weeks. Also blooming are: <B>profuse</B> amounts of Large-flowered Blue-eyed Mary <I>(Collinsia grandiflora)</I>, Gold Star <i>Crocidium multicaule</i>, Small-flowered Blue-eyed Mary <I>(Collinsia parviflora)</I>, Upland Larkspur <I>(Delphinium nuttallianum)</I>, Western Buttercup <I>(Ranunculus occidentalis </I>var. <I>occidentalis)</I>, Smooth Prairie Star <I>(Lithophragma glabra)</I>, Northwestern Saxifrage <I>(Saxifraga integrifolia)</I>, Miners Lettuce <I>(Claytonia perfoliata)</I>, Manroot <I>(Marah oreganus)</I>, Ball-Head Waterleaf <I>(Hydrophyllum capitatum </I>var. <I>thompsonii)</I>, Oaks Toothwort <I>(Cardamine nuttallii </I>var. <I>nuttallii)</I>, Glacier Lily <I>(Erythronium grandiflorum)</I>, and a few remaining Grass Widows <I>(Olsynium douglasii)</I>.
