Had a great trip with Jens last week. It's about a 9 hour drive to the Siskyous from Vancouver, provided you don't stop at Cistus Nursery on the way down. These costal mountain ranges contain one of North America's centers of plant diversity, as expected from such an area there is a high degree of endemism. A 2 hour drive can take you from arid screes, over mountain top and on to the costal redwood forests. We were early in the season, the cold spring has put the west coast about 3 weeks behind. I'm hoping to go back in about 4 weeks to see the progression of bloom, with luck I may also be able to collect seed from the first of the spring ephemerals. Philip

Great plants and photos but best of all was the line of dead trees.

Do you ever stay home long enough to wash the dishes?

I had a hard time tracking down the "Siskyous".  The best approximation I came up with was the Siskiyous, a mountain range near the border between the states of Oregon and California.  Is that where we are?

Philip, I suspect that your Vioa beckwithii is actually Viola hallii, which is more likely to be found in the Siskiyous.  Thanks for posting your photos of some great plants!

A little information for travelers to the Siskiyous:

  • Wikipedia has a good article on the Siskiyous
  • includes most of the Siskiyous, approximately outlined by a polygon starting at Grants Pass (or Grass Pants, as it is fondly known to its friends), proceeding to Central Point, Ashland, Yreka, Klamath, Crescent City, Gold Beach, and finish at Grants Pass.
  • US Highway 199 between Grass Pants and Crescent City passes through some breathtaking scenery in California, where it follows an extremely narrow river valley—really a gorge—for some distance. covers the general area.
  • is a well known site for plant lovers, and very easy to access.
  • is another well-known plant hunting site, reasonably easy of access.
  • Be careful about following gravel and dirt roads off the main highway. This area includes some very wild and isolated country, and you don't want to get stranded. Check before you drive off into the mountains!

Diane Whitehead has spent way more time in the Siskiyous than I ever have, so look for comments from her.
