     That 12-mile hike was more productive than I had anticipated.  I added 
two, probably three more flowers to my checklist, one of which is Fringed 
Rockdaisy:

     A more common flower found was Chuparosa:

and lots and lots of lichens munching away at the ancient volcanic ash:

     The scenery seen in this area is exceptional after the first four miles:

there is an interesting geological feature just to the right of top centre.  An 
ash flow had been eroded away, then covered with a lava flow, and then eroded 
away once again to reveal the boundary.  Not something that you see very often. 
 It can also be seen in the previous photo in the distance at left centre.
