Coordinator notes: Good record Glenn, the earliest in Season for this subspecies and the species breaking my June 2 record for the species and mine for subspecies cilla. Thank goodness at least I have a good series of klamathensis from Mt. Ashland on July 16, 1996. That is the subspecies you have-Ken Davenport.
