I’ve wanted to visit the Butterfly Valley Botanical Area for a long time, so when we went orchid hunting recently near Quincy we made sure that we had enough time to visit this area. Instead of hunting orchids, we were hunting carnivorous plants!

More orchids in Plumas County! On the same trip where we found orchids near Quincy, we visited a few spots on the way up the Feather River Canyon. We found flowers in several places, but the most exciting was on a side trip on Caribou Road. Two kinds of orchids, Reed Lilies, Tiger Lilies and more!
We’ve never been to the Lakes Basin area of Plumas County before, so I didn’t know what to expect. We visited the area in early July 2010. What we found was a wonderful hiking area with a variety of flowers, lakes and hiking trails. The trail was uneven in spots, but not difficult for the most part. There are many trails in the area so you can choose how long to hike.
