Species (by family) seen blooming on August 5 along the trail from White Wolf to Lukens Lake:

If you're in the White Wolf area and see a flower in bloom along the trail that we don't have listed, we would love to have your help in keeping our list as complete as possible. A great way to let us know of your find is to talk to a White Wolf ranger at one of our free ranger-guided programs listed in the Yosemite Guide newspaper. If you're able to take a picture and/or describe where you saw it, that is always helpful.
