Second time trying to find this flower proved successful. They really are strange little things, in addition to being insanely rare (they only grow on Ring Mountain, I believe). They're fairly unassuming from a distance, brownish yellow, the same color as the surrounding grass, but they just get weirder and weirder as you draw closer.
To the woman I met along the trail: hike the Phyllis Ellman Trail, and look out for weird little brown flowers!
