Whiskey Dick Mountain: Rocky Coulee Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is called a “wildlife area” but could just as easily be a “state wild?ower area.” On any given spring day, hikers can expect to see an array of wild?owers that puts the pretty alpine meadows to shame.
Some of the plethora of blooms spotted during visits here are thyme-leaved desert parsley, Douglas buckwheat (huge masses of it), thyme-leaved buckwheat, shaggy daisy/shaggy ?eabane, linear-leaved daisy (also called line-leaved ?eabane), Cusick’s sun?ower, Hooker’s onion, woolly-pod milk vetch, brodacia, silky lupines, rock penstemon, Thompson’s paintbrush, thread-leaved phacelia, Hooker’s balsamroot, white phlox, Scouler’s penstemon, small-?owered penstemon, cushion ?eabane, large-?owered collomia, narrow-leaved collomia, bitterroot, hedgehog cactus, and bitterbrush. Bring your wild?ower guide to keep track of the plants, but also keep in mind that this is a wildlife area, so expect to see some critters, too."
