Saw quite a bit of this plant along the stream in Trail Canyon. One of our guides thought it was rare. His impression was that it's a fire follower that moved in after the Canyon burned in the '09 Station Fire.
Leaves are lobed, fuzzy, and odorless. There were quite a few bumblebees sleeping(?) in the flowers since significant sun had not hit this part of the canyon yet.
reddish, with banding long tail
These 3 birds circles above our group. they seemed curious to see such a large group walking along the trail.
