One of the wild orchids found in Yosemite – a spotted coralroot.
In this cluster of Applegate’s Paintbrush the flowers ranged from orange to yellow. One of the yellow flower heads can be seen in the background near the top.
Some Western Wallflowers near a fallen sequoia that has survived a forest fire.

I’ve been unable to identify this flowering shrub at this point so any help would be appreciated.
This appears to be some sort of Locust Tree in bloom.
Maybe not a flowering plant but I loved the bright green moss covering the bark of these trees.

This hillside was devoid of any other vegetation but these snowflowers insisted on flowering.
One of the snowflowers close-up. They were near the end of their blooming period.
White cinquefoils in full bloom.
Wild Lupines were blooming in many areas of Yosemite during June. Many of them were 3 – 4 feet tall along the roadside while others were maybe a foot in height like this one.
The Mountain Dogwoods were near the end of their flowering stage but there were still a few showing off for us.
It’s amazing where plants can live. Even under this boulder phlox can survive.
