There are several species of wild iris that grow in the Sierra Nevada, this is probably either Western Blue Flag (Iris missouriensis) (most likely), maybe Hartweg's Iris (Iris hartwegii) (less likely) or even possibly Iris versicolor, but my money would be on Iris missouriensis. All require lots of water to bloom.

After looking around a bit I'm thinking it is Hartweg's since they were growing in a very wet area.
