Wildflowers, Part 1

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to hike in the high country and enjoy the wildflowers. It’s like nature is celebrating summer too. And these flowers, sometimes blanketing hillsides, are absolutely brilliant. Then a closer look reveals the delicate complexity of each flower. The first in my series is called a shooting star. They are found only in areas with a lot of moisture, along streams and in watersheds.
