These pretty daisies were among many flowers blooming on Marmot Pass during our July visit.  We also recall seeing them growing out of a crevice between giant boulders beside a large tarn in the upper Royal Basin last July.  We find it difficult to distinguish between some members of the aster-composite family, but these are fairly easy.  Their leaves form a low mat, which each single stem bloom rises a few inches above.  They hang out among rocks and gravel at mid to high elevations in much of the northwest.
