I discovered this beautiful flower at Lime Kiln Creek about 50 miles south of Big Sir California. It was in a redwood grove, mostly shaded, not in the mist zone of the falls. I have several photos of the flowers both open and closed. The flowers are small about an inch or so.

If anyone knows what these flowers are that'd be great. Thank You!
