Shelf fungi; Bateman Creek x2; trembling aspens; the velvety berries of twisted stalk (Streptopus amplexifolius):
A steep roadcut into eroding conglomerate, topped by coaly strata - the sparse vegetation on this slope is dominated by Polemonium viscosissimum (mainly), Phacelia sericea and grasses (plus a few dandelions):

Sibbald Creek, is it named for the same person as Sibbaldia?
