Wildflowers in Park City, Utah

I’ve been visiting PCMI in Park City, Utah, and took a hike with Roger Howe, Sybilla Beckman, and Susanna Epp up by Guardsman Pass. The wildflowers were lovely, these paint-brushes, some lovely blue tubular flowers, and a delicate cream-yellow poppy with dark veins. We also saw a Western Wood Pewee, a Rocky Mountain variant of a Dark-eyed Junco, with a striking brown mantle and without the usual black hood. The capper was a Mountain Bluebird that Roger saw settling on a chair lift as we returned to the car, a stunning bird, blue all over.
