Top part of the Hamms Gulch trail near Skyline. Here's a shot of a field of them.
My wrong trail led down to a creek and seemed to end there but I crossed the creek and found a small trail (with footprints) about the size of a deer run. Sure enough, at the top of the hill I found a doe. To the left was the grassland in the next photo and to the right were some woods with this lily in the shadows at border between the grass and the woods. Monte Bello Open Space Preserve.
Found in a grassland on the south face of a hill at Monte Bello Open Space Preserve. This clump was growing in the middle of a small trail parallel to Canyon trail on the right of the dead looking mossy trees. The trail being covered with flowers should have been my first clue that I wasn't on the main trail where I thought I was. (eNature)
This was deep in the woods and the trail was cut out of the side of a hill. On one side of the trail was a 5ft high cliff of bare dirt and this flower growing out the side of it. The plant was maybe a foot high and the flower about 3/4" diameter. (Jepson)
Dead in barn in rural grassland setting. Tail length 96mm, total length 171 mm, hind foot length 23mm, ear length 21 mm.
