Hi Chris,

Great photo! That looks like Uropappus lindleyi (common name “Silver Puffs”) ¬†– an annual forb native to California.

You can check out the details here:

As summer approaches, its great to see how elevation affects the flowering period for our native forbs and shrubs.  Keep taking those photos!
