Alaska draba blooming along Forest Service Road #2630 on the north side of the ridge making up Mount Pisgah, Ochoco National Forest.........June 13, 2015. Note the several leaves on the lower stems and the mostly glabrous upper stems and pedicels, which are equal to or less than the length of the fruits. These characteristics help distinguish this species from the similar Draba nemorosa.
