    Beautiful species! Thanks for the habitat info, if you have any I'd love to see photos of habitat and associated vegetation.

    Those spurs are massive for the size of the flowers. New one for me. Thanks for posting.

    Best time to go up for these is April - after the BIG RAINS and before it gets too cold...there are some species we miss in Dec/Jan/Feb as there's just too much rain and the mountains get dangerous...April is THE VERY BEST and THE MOST BEAUTIFUL time of the year to do this hike....anyone interested in coming out here?
