Would a root by any other name be as bitter? (by Kat)

That plant I couldn't identify?
It's called bitterroot (Lewisia rediviva).

Like the national forest.
Like the mountain range.
Like this one-time archy has no excuse for not knowing....
So, a dope slap to the side of the head for me, and one more plant identification for you.

PS I've been waxing rhapsodic about cryptobiotic soils ever since the hike.
As far as I've found, no ode has ever been written to this magical phenomenon.
I have long waits at doctors offices tomorrow with my grandma.
Just a warning.
