Clusters of Phlox – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 219

Clusters of Phlox at Yosemite

Apparently this environment was favorable for this species of phlox

You might remember that in post YOY 216, I showed a closeup of spreading phlox and how it likes to nestle into crevices in and around rocks.

The picture above also shows how clusters spread out along the sandy areas of the Sentinel Dome and Taft Point trails. The random patches of purple color really did make a beautiful scene especially up against the contrasting, abutting green foliage and brown sand.
