I have also seen Corallorhiza maculata in bloom just past the Little Yosemite Valley campground. If I remember correctly, it was in a May and they were under the trees to the left (away from the river) of the trail.

How beautiful....This year I spotted and photoed a "leopard lily". It was along the creek in TM across from the campground. If you follow along from where the creek runs under the road (by D Loop) and follow the creek to the left by the pines is where I saw it. The only other one I spotted was by White Wolf quite a few years back.
