Pink Skyrockets?

I was visiting with Montucky at Montana Outdoors and noted that I had some images that were similar to his recently posted photographs of Skyrockets.  I thought I remembered seeing some in white and pink, but could only find these in pink.  They look like they could be the same flowers, but maybe they’re not….  If I’m not mistaken, the white flowers in this photo are Leafy Jacob’s Ladder.

I made this photograph in July of last year during a hike to Lake Desolation in Big Cottonwood Canyon of the Wasatch Mountains just south and east of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

  1. These are very pretty and certainly resemble the Scarlet Gilia. I just looked these up on the Burke Museum site and they do include photos of pink and white ones and note them as a subspecies.

    • We’ve got them in the thin red version up here, as well…as opposed to the shorter and thicker variety that Montucky shared in his post.

  7. Your wild flowers are really spectacular. I do hope that yesterday’s sandstorm didn’t cause you too many issues…..a bit scary…..

    • Spectacular, indeed, John. And regarding the sandstorm, my wife and son received “dust storm” alerts on their phones last evening, my other son posted an image on Facebook that someone else had taken, like a wave of sand moving over the city, but the most we received at our place in north Phoenix was a bit of wind and rain and lots of nice lightning and thunder. We missed the haboob! Thank you for your thoughts, though. 🙂

    Your flowers are mountainous . . . your mountains are gardens. Just just just so epic, Scott.
