    Looks kinda like a Tragopogon, but has a stronger midvein and longer leaves than I'm familiar with.

    Still wondering what this is. Here are some more pictures of it in the field.

    Doesn't look right for a Tragopogon, that has different leaf layout on the stems. Sorry, don't know what it is, though.

    Probably, Lactuca graminifolia.
