    Could anyone help me ID this lily that was growing along the Desolation Peak Trail in the North Cascades National Park in Washington State? It had already bloomed and had developed seed pods. I'm think it must be a Lilium columbianum but not sure if it could be another lily.

    Thank you both for taking the time to ID this plant. I thought that was the only lilium in that area but thought it best to double check with the experts.
