South hills plant expedition.

Today I went with the Idaho Native Plant Society for a plant expedition to the "South Hills" a mountain range just south of Twin-Falls.  They are more blunt than the big sharp Sawtooth range just north of me, none the less they are very pristine.  A wide range of native habitat is still very much intact, and I was glad the Idaho Native Plant Society shared their knowledge of the area with me.
