I'm hoping to affirm these plants found on a marshy walkabout are Sidalcea hendersonii.
It certainly looks like Sidalcea hendersonii. I grew one in my garden for years but it died in the heat dome last year. E-Flora BC says, "Henderson's checker-mallow is a native plant species found in wet meadows, estuaries and tidal flats in southwestern British Columbia." It is somewhat at risk so a nice plant to find on your walkabout.

Agreed, seems likely.
The few times I've seen what is presumably this species it has always been a tiny population in a marshlike situation poking up from among grasses - just like in your pictures.
Yes, that is what I'm seeing.
Oh, there are places where you can find thousands of them.
