    • Thank you, Chillbrook…I think is commonly called a “Skyrocket,” with a formal name of “Ipomopsis aggregata”…not that the name changes how pretty it is, though. πŸ™‚

  2. That third one is the seed head of western yellow goat’s beard for sure. I think one of them might be a lupine too, but other than that I’m not sure. But they sure are beautiful flowers and that’s all that matters.

    • I spent about 20 minutes going through a wildflower fold-out that I have and finally came to the same conclusion…it doesn’t matter what we call them, their beauty goes beyond the names. I’m glad you enjoyed them, Allen.

  3. WOW. I can’t imagine finding this many wildflowers on a car-hike from my house to Mickey D’s! πŸ™‚ These are so pretty, Scott.

    • I’m glad you like the flowers, George…and I don’t know that you’ll find them between the house and Mickey D’s unless you take the entirely too long scenic route. πŸ™‚

  4. I recognize most of these, but the ones in the fourth photo are new to me. Very pretty!

    • Thank you, Montucky….I only have a small wildflower guide and I can’t find the fourth one in there….

    • The hike was about 12 miles total, Shimon, with four of the miles being very steep inclines, coming and going…and I was out there for just over six hours…with a little time for catching the breath and taking a couple of sit-down breaks to have a snack and rest….

  6. We have a couple of your flowers here in the UK too, the first and third ones here are in my local fields at the moment. We call the third one ‘jack go to bed at noon’ because the flowers close up over lunchtime. It’s fun to see pictures of the same flowers growing in Utah!

    • I think it’s neat, too, Finn, that we share some of the same flowers…thousands of miles and an ocean apart. πŸ™‚

  7. One of my favorite things about hiking and camping, is seeing the wide variety of flora. As always, beautiful pictures!
