Hey Andrew,

I took a number of photos of this dark brown-red plant, but they are
still at the lab. I hope some come even close to capturing its beauty.
If any turn out, I'll put them on the web.

I'll head back later this season to see what the plant looks like (I put
flagging on it.) The colors may just be environmental, for all we know.
I *may* pursue getting a collection permit for a specimen of this plant,
but that would not be until next spring.
