Spotted yesterday on the momyer Creek trail, down low along the sunny hot switchback about a half mile up the trail. I looked everywhere online and can’t find it. The cluster of tiny flowers is about as big around as a quarter.
Great photo! That looks like Uropappus lindleyi (common name “Silver Puffs”) – an annual forb native to California.

Hey, thanks! Good to know. There was a lot blooming on the trail, mostly below 7,500 ft. Here’s some more flowers from low on the trail:
