Buckbrush (Ceanothus fendleri) (155) fruits are (more or less) triangular red berries. Flowers were present on this plant at the same time. They're the tiny white things you see in clusters.
Yellow salsify (Tragopogon dubius) (55) fruits look like dandelion fruits. Indeed, these plants are in the same family (Aster). If you are able, take a closer look at the fruits. The seed is the dark thin part at the base of the "parachute." These seeds are wind dispersed, of course; the parachute allows each seed to drift away from the parent plant and is as dainty and as beautiful as a spider web.
