J. Zimmerman's second favorite wild flower of the Berry Creek Falls Loop Trail of the Big Basin State Park is Western Azalea (Rhododendron occidentale).
She especially likes it because of its sweet fragrance, the many blossoms at nose level so that you can (beware of bees) put your nose into a blossom without upending your bottom, and the warm, creamy colors.
