  • date of photo  Jul 1, 2001
  • location   Upper Gardner Meadow (Alpine County, California, US)
  • family Asteraceae
  • notes   This was growing in a boulder cleft that had filled with sand and dirt to about half of its depth. It was totally invisible if you were just walking by, but we had stopped for a drink of water and to rest at the boulder. The dandelion caught my eye, but before I could photograph it, I had to remove four crushed Budweiser cans, two Coke cans, a large amount of wadded up aluminum foil and two empty potato chip bags. I can never understand this. If you go to all the trouble of packing that garbage in when it is full and heavy, why is it so darned difficult to take it back out when it is empty? One can only assume those who don't care enough about that beauty and its presevation, are the same lazy, uncaring louts who throw their empty Budweiser cans along the roadsides as well.
