Wildflowers in Yankee Boy Basin

Wildflowers everywhere in Yankee Boy Basin


Loretta and I were at Yankee Boy Basin today. I’ve never seen the wildflowers as thick and gorgeous as this! And there were many columbines—so many I put them all in another post (see this). This post has more wildflowers—there were so many to choose from!
Bluebells

I like this particular photo of the blue bells the most because it shows two different colors on the same plant!

Blue trumpets - almost purple!


I like to find patterns in things and love this closeup of a dandelion puff.

There was more beauty than just the wildflowers. The following is a photo of Twin Falls (one of several waterfalls in the area). I slowed down the shutter speed to blur the water a bit—I hope you like the effect!
