I led some wildflower walks this weekend for Rock Island State Park’s “Waterfalls and Wildflowers” celebration. The stars of the weekend included the toothworts — I have never seen so many in bloom at once — the hillside was covered with at least two species if not more — cut leaf toothwort (Dentaria laciniata), plus crinkle root (D. diphylla) and/or slender toothwort (D. heterophylla).
The Downstream Trail, where we hiked Saturday and Sunday afternoons, was just beautiful! Here’s saturday’s group pictured in front of spectacular Twin Falls. Because I had hikes on two days, the park put us up for free in one of their very nice cabins!
