[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There are 14 endemic flowers in the Columbia River Gorge area. This is one of them, the Columbia Desert Parsley. I captured this one on an early spring walk in Tom McCall Nature Preserve. The Grass Widows were covering the hills but there were just a few of these Parsley peeking up their early heads.

When Columbia Desert Parsley (Lomatium columbianum) first appears in early March, small flower heads appear above a modest amount of foliage. A week later, the foliage will overtake and submerge the flower heads. By mid-March, only a large mound of lacy green foliage will be visible. By late March, the flowerheads reappear above the foliage.
