  • date of photo  Aug 5, 2006
  • location   Sweetwater Mountains, east slope, in scree beneath snowfield, just above lake above Belfort (Mono County, California, US)

  • plant community   alpine fell field
  • notes   I was just getting chased of the crest by thunderstorms when I crossed a snowfield while descending from the summit of Wheeler Peak. I found a nice population of this Sweetwater endemic just below the snowfield at more towards its northern end. This snowfield fills the large cirque above and west of the lake at 10,650 feet (above Belfort).
