Owl Creek Wildflowers
I was up and about Owl Creek Pass this evening and opted to take the doubletrack trail from Vista Point to Stealey Mountain Trailhead, normally a nice, easy trail. Well, the wet spring and heavy runoff we’ve had this year has roughed the trail up. But I did find wildflowers. As I was going through an area under some aspens, the subalpine larkspur (see above) caught my eye—at first I thought they were blue faerie trumpet (faerie trumpets are orange). But the structure of the flower is different. Below is a scene under the aspens just to show how many wildflowers there are.
Here’s a closeup of the common yarrow.
