Spreading Phlox on the Trail – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 216

Spreading Phlox

Pockets of spreading phlox appeared along the trials

The Sentinel Dome and Taft Poin
t trails share a junction-type trailhead. We decided to hike the Sentinel Dome Trail first to assure that we had all the time we needed there. Later we had plenty of energy and time so we then hiked to Taft Point.

Along the way, we passed a number of pockets of Spreading phlox (Phlox diffusa). The clusters were very pretty offset against the rocks and brown sound. It appears that the phlox likes to locate itself against rocks and in crevices that are formed by the natural surroundings.
