Eclipse and blooms in the Sierras

So I went up to the Sierras with some friends to see the annular eclipse this last weekend, and was also pleasantly surprised to see a lot of spring flowers.  First some pics of the eclipse and the weird suncircles that would filter through the leaves of the trees.
And now onto flowers.  The dogwoods were in bloom.  This one was next to our campsite.
I've never seen so many fairy lanterns (Calochortus albus) before.  They were scattered all along this trail.

More after the jump.
