Utah Wildflowers

This year I was in Utah during the end of the wildflower season. While I am admittedly bad at identifying flowers and plants, I still wanted to get shots of these beautiful, bright little flowers.

I found this little guy on a hike along to foot of the Wasatch Range. There is still a lot of runoff from snow in higher elevations; you could see the snow still at the tops of the mountains though it was already in the 80s at the lower elevations.

These beautiful yellow flowers were part of a wildflower garden. The purples were just starting to fade, giving way to bright yellow flowers of early summer.

This lavender colored little flower looked almost like a tiny snapdragon. We also saw a lot of bumblebees pollinating the flowers.
