The five images of Snow Plants growing out of dry soils are from Dumonts Meadow to Falls Meadow along the East Fork of the Carson River. It's dry up in there.

The one completely vibrant Snow Plant is growing in the saturated soils of the South Upper Truckee River during the height of the Spring Thaw just below the snow line.
