Cryptantha sp.

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Asterids Boraginales Boraginaceae Cryptantha

Popcorn flower. Many similar species.

The most common one in our area is probably C. intermedia but they are hard to distinguish. I think C. decipiens grows on the west fork of Cold Spring.

Grows on the upper reaches of most trails (in a fairly dry environment).

Seems to bloom Jan-August.
