Thanks Ryan. That looks right--compared to Phlox, alternate leaves not opposite.

Yeah I may have solved your phlox issue as well. Plants are the only thing I seem to be half way descent at identifying..

I need help with a lot of things, but especially plants! Thanks for helping with that Phlox-esque plant in CA. In your profile, it says you're learning the AK flora next? Neat. That's where I'm originally from, and I posted a few alpine flowering plants from this summer.

I plan to move up there and hopefully work with the vegetation program in the Central Alaskan Network. Looks like you may have been on the Muir Trail'ish' when you came upon that Leptosiphon pachyphyllus?
