Unfortunately my skills as a botanist have failed me in identifying this particular flower.  I used my National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Wildflowers: Western Region as well as a great wildflower identification website I found with no luck.  The two different colors of flower look a bit like a chia but that is more of a “thorny” bud.  Also the little pods attached and the yellow tipped stamen aren’t quite right.  Anyone know what this one is?
