    This species is abundant on the Memaloose hills, a BLM tract on the Oregon side of the Columbia gorge, near Mosier. One of the beauty spots of the planet. Dang, New Mexico is nice, but I miss Orygun 8^(!

    Nothing like a good bighead clover year!

    Memaloose is a great name.

    I think this site is Stinkingwater (of Pass fame) also in Orygun.

    And these bighead clove sites are sooo … vulnerable to some of the expanding weeds if subjected to too much livestock trampling.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
