My Locale West Virginia
About Me I was a guide for many years in Yellowstone, Denali, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Moved to Eugene, Oregon, for my Master's and got a good taste of the PNW. Now I'm in West Virginia making maps for all of our wonderful national parks with the NPS Publications program at Harpers Ferry Center.

Can't give you the species without more details, but: the flower on the right is from the genus Dodecatheon, commonly known as shootingstars. Beautiful flowers all.

Their 45 or 60 liter packs are a bit tougher than your spec, but fit the bill.
