Wildflowers

When visiting the Mountain West, one should take the time to view the beautiful wildflowers lining trails and mountainsides. This gallery includes images of Wildflowers.

Although I am not a professional botanist, I will try include family and genus with the pictures. When I feel daring, I will include the species. Feel free to correct my mistakes. See Flowers by Family for my best guesses at classifying the plants.
