Giant Red Paintbrush
miniata - reddish color
Above: on the R-Ranch
C. miniata is the only species I've seen on the R-Ranch.
It grows to 2 and 3 feet high and prefers moist areas.
It can be found growing along South Creek,
and along Parker Meadow Creek, both at the lower level
behind Main Street Cabins, and up near the dam.
