Wordless Wednesdays: Wasatch Wildflowers




Locals: Have you hit the trails? What are you waiting for??

Our plentiful rains have inspired an amazing celebration on the lower elevation hiking paths in the Wasatch Mountains, Utah. 

Find these pretties along the Strawberry Narrows.

Hi, Gttyup;
That red flower is a skyrocket. I rarely see this wildflower blooming so it was a pretty special find...

I love wildflowers. The ones on your trails are beautiful and so different from the wildflowers in northern BC. How exciting I would love to go hiking in the Wasatch.

I knew when I saw the title this was going to be a good post! I'm a little jealous, though, because we've got green, but not near the blossom colors yet you are displaying!

Absolutely lovely flowers! Spring time is a great time for exploring new paths and trails!

We've been seeing lots of wildflowers at 7000-8000 feet.
Beautiful photos!

Beautiful wildflowers! I'm not really a hiker, but sights like these might motivate me to put some boots on and go exploring.
