May 22, 2017: Finley National Wildlife Refuge & Mary's Peak, Oregon

The main botanical attraction at William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge is the golden paintbrush (Castilleja levisecta), which used to be extinct in Oregon but has been reintroduced in a few protected areas. It seems to be doing well.

Since I was in the neighborhood, I also stopped by Mary's Peak, about 12 miles west of Finley NWR. It was too early for most wildflowers; there were still a few patches of snow near the summit.
