    I would like to confirm ID for some plants and have ID for others

    1. I think it is Ericameria nauseosa or Ericameria viscidiflora or some other type.
    I found it Ryegrass Safety Rest Area(hwy90), near Ellensburg

    2.This flowers were near creek at White Pass Scenic Byway, near Packwood. It was late, so they probably were closed for night?

    3. These two probably Penstemons we found at St. Helens

    4. This is not clear picture. This spangled plant grows in Dry Falls park, near Coulee City. I checked for ID by color http://www.pnwflowers.com/ site and only Pseudognaphalium looks something like my plant

    5. This is probably Senecio from the same Dry Falls park

    # 5 is Solidago sp.
    The flowers on # 2 look like Senecio, but the leaves ?

    A penstemon often found on Mt. St. Helens is the beautiful Penstemon cardwellii.

    4 is an Eriogonum. Yes, 1 is an Ericameria / Chrysothamnus.

    Thank you. First one with blue flowers is Penstemon cardwellii, second with pink flowers has different leaves.

    3 possibilities to my eye by comparing photos on the Burke Museum plant image database. Eriogonum niveum would seem most likely.
