I don’t have the answers - just the pictures.  If you know what these plants are please let me know.  If you don’t, enjoy the images of native Kern River plants.

A is a Cockleburr. I see plenty of them in the seasonal marshes in the Sacramento Valley.

I am absolutely no help here... but I did enjoy seeing all the interesting plant species! You have a very different landscape out there than we have here.

G and H are both buckwheats, but I have no clue which of the many native varieties they might be.

I wish I could help..nothing is familiar to me..I guess California is a long way from Minnesota! They are lovely photos. :)

Not a clue...but the photos are great!

G and H are probably buckwheat.

C may be Yucca whippeli, or Our Lord's Candle.

I love the green of E - some kind of lichen, but not sure what kind.
