… and here’s its pretty cousin!

RI toothwort

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).

RI Sat group

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!
