Wildflower at Smith Rock


Smith Rock State Park, Oregon

July 29, 201738.9 mm: ISO 200: f/4.5: 1/60 sec.

The Misery Ridge Trail is a brutal hike straight up and back down Smith Rock, leading to a nice leisurely walk along the river back to the front of the mountain.  During the latter half of the hike, I found these really cool wild flowers at a handful of locations. I was struck by their star shape and really striking yellow tones.  I had no luck determining what kind of flower they are, so if you happen to know, let me know in the comments.
