    Can anyone ID this flower?



    Tentative identification: California Poppy.

    Found on the Dante's Ridge trail, Death Valley, California. (Note that this is about 6,000' above sea level, given the wind and our slow pace I never removed my windbreaker. It is not the hellish temperatures of the valley floor.)

    That's a mariposa lily, genus calochorta. Bulbs are edible, and were popular in traditional cuisine and medicine.
