Corn Lily Leaves
On this trip, the landscape was dry, due to drought, elevation and time of year. So some plant colors came from leaves or sepals, like the yellow of these corn lily leaves.
Little Water Plants
Moss and little water plants edge a tiny waterfall in Golden Creek as it passes through a meadow.
