Pine Creek hike - part 2

I found another kind of Astragalus half way up Horse Mountain. There was a small community of plants, mostly dried up by the hot sun. I didn't find any more of these plants anywhere else on my hike. And I have no idea of the name of this plant - yet! These are definately interesting plants and I hope to grow some in my garden one day.

The seed pods fall to the ground and then split open to release the seeds. The seed pods were "paper like" and smooth(non hairy).

See my first ever post back in July to see pictures of the other Astragalus I've found.
