Wildflowers (06/03/2006) Wildflowers near Beaver Creek.
Cinquefoil (06/03/2006) Tiny flower near Beaver Creek.
Thimbleberry (06/15/2006) Thimbleberries (Rubus parviflorus) tend to grow in patches near streams. A member of the Rosaceae, the Thimbleberry is a close kin to the Raspberry.
Sticky Geranium (06/15/2006) I believe this to be a Sticky Geranium (Geranium viscosissimum). The flower enjoys the moderate sun and is often found growing besides trails and roads. It would be great in a Native Flower Garden.
TBD - Flower (06/15/2006) This tiny flower provided a challenge that I failed. The stem is about as thick as a blade of grass. It is lined with delightful wheel shaped flowers. Unfortunately, my shot does not have all of the flowers in focus.
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.
