On serpentine rock and soil, Ingalls Lake trail, Kittitas County, Washington, USA

From Mark Egger:
"Castilleja elmeri, in one of it's many other color forms. This is a serpentine endemic. It's by far the most common paintbrush along the Ingall's Lake trail"

Found on serpentine soil. The name of this one slips my mind, but it's a very popular flower! Called something "bell" maybe?

Description

Height of plant is about 8 inches.

If you magnify photo, you can see hairs on the axis of the stem and portions of the petals.

I'm leaning toward Delphinium hesperium, but could certainly use an expert's opinion.
