Default On Mt. Tam in Marin County

I need help identifying a beautiful wildflower. On June 2, these were found in the shade below our path under tall trees -redwoods, firs, pines - in damp areas near ferns. The flowers were multiple hanging bells - ten to twenty or so - on a 3 to 4 foot stalk . The bells were on the upper half of the stalk. Some stalks had white bells and some had purple. Each bell was near 2 to 3 inches long and about an inch across the opening. Could be a river lupine, but flowers were more definitely bells shaped and hanging - and stalks seemed taller - so lovely! Any ideas?

Sounds like Calochortus albus to me.

On second thought, it might have been Digitalis purpurea, an alien (european) garden escapee, which I've seen growing in damp areas near the top of the Cataract trail out of Rock Springs.

Probably two (or more) kinds bell-flowers are noted, one Disporum smithii (white bells) two, Clintonia andrewsii (pink bells) or.. a Triteleia or Dichelostemma species. Calochortus albus has not yet been recorded in Marin county.
