Darlingtonia in Josephine County, Oregon

Recommended Posts

A few photos from one of my favorite Darlingtonia locations. This particular fen is near the terminus of a complex of seeps leading down the southwest face of $8 mountain. The first plants in the colony are located rather high up the mountain, scattered here and there amongst a jagged assemblage of ultramafic debris, and the last are within spitting distance of the Illinois River. At this time of year sunlight seldom breaks through the clouds, but when it does, it is often accompanied by rain. The light is often beguiling, yet also far more fleeting than I might desire.
