Summit Road, Union County, OR

June 13, 2007: Summit Road, Union County, OR: The winter snow has melted and Summit Road is open full length. The soil is still wet from snow melt and the wildflowers are ramping up although it is already too late for some of the early blooming species like Erythronium.

Marvin and I started from Highway 204 near Tollgate and headed south toward I-84. We made many stops for brief forays into the field along the 40 mile drive. We were delighted to find several new species (new to us) and a number of old friends like this Prairie Smoke.
