not 100% sure but pretty sure that's it. I don't think there are other yellow ones in that area.

I'm thrown off by the red coloring, because when I look at other pics of Calochortus luteus, I don't see the same red patterns. Its some kind of Mariposa Lily for sure, but the color patterns look different to me.

oops, I think I just mixed up my scientific names. I'm pretty sure it is c. clavatus upon a second look

I was originally leaning that way, but being that it is a rare flower I was unsure. I appreciate it.

yep! Thanks for uploading it! C. clavatus isn't as rare as some people think (though still threatened by habitat loss, etc), I think it is just rarely seen because its blooming period is short and it doesn't bloom every year.
