Just returned from one of the cp capitals of the West: NW CA & SW-OR.
Thought some of you might be interested in a preview of possible highlights
there if you are free to wander our wilderness areas next summer.

Key Words: Gasquet, Hiouchi, Wimer Road, $8 Mountain Rd., Smith River,
Illinois River, serpentine.

Probable cps: Darlingtonia californica, Drosera rotundifolia, Pinguicula
macroceras nortensis.

Possible cps north or south of this area: all other cps of W.-US including U.

Other species of note: serpentine endemics, several members of Liliaceae,

Also to be seen: emu, ostrich, pronghorn antelope, llama, various elk,
several avian species of both oceanic and continental origin to fatten up
those life lists.

Anbody interested in doing a grand-slam of NA cps in the summer of 2000;
probably only cost about 3 weeks and $30K!
