Calochortus macrocarpus, also known as sagebrush mariposa lily, is a North American species of bulbous perennials in the lily family.
I went here with a friend of mine to check out the wildflowers and Pluto Cave. This is located on the Klamath National Forest. Permitted Guides aren't allowed to guide here. It is open to the public sunrise to sunset.
A great lunch spot!

Have a fun and safe 4th of July Weekend!
The Latest out there~
I first decided to check out what's happening at Lake Siskiyou. The drive down North Shore Road is very pot holed-out! It is plowed but still very challenging. Wagon Creek Bridge looks inviting.
A little further south I decided to check out what's happening along Castle Creek Road located in the Castle Crags State Park area. The crags weren't showing in the clouds. This red barn has its own unique look. I love the oak trees around it. There is still lots of snow and the park itself is closed.
This waterfall is rockin! There is still snow on the trail but walkable. Learn more on a tour or my book, "Mount Shasta Guide to Fun".
The mountain road (Everitt Memorial Highway) and Castle Lake Road are still closed at the lower gates. There is no estimated time when they will open. We hope soon!
This mother and daughter from New Jersey had a great time on a tour playing in the snow!
Castle Lake gets snow. Not too much yet but making it very beautiful!
Horse Camp also known as the Sierra Club Cabin is located at 7,900ft. on Mt. Shasta. Try a guided snowshoe tour to the cabin.
