I just spent two days at Lassen Park and was amazed at the amount of wildflowers still blooming. Lassen is having a very late wildflower season. Lots of species and displays. Many are right along the road. I even managed to see Fawn lilies still blooming by snow melt. There are many flowers along the main road from about a mile south of the park to Kings Creek. It is worth the very short walk down to Kings Creek to see the meadow. The best displays were in the higher elevations. Some areas are definitely past peak but there are some flowers that have yet to bloom.

I also hiked out to Paradise Meadow. Although past peak, there were many species in bloom and good displays along the trail by the creek and at the edges of the Meadow. The far edge of the meadow and slightly up hill from the edge were many Corn Lily, Lupine and Arrowhead Groundsel still in bloom. I even found a few Sierra Lilies in bloom.
