Hiking among the flowers

Late in the Summer for the high mountains, the only flowers left blooming in profusion were at about the 10,000 foot level. It takes a considerable effort to hike up to this level, but the view is definitely worth the effort. The trail here is relatively level and a respite from either climbing constantly upward or pounding down. This photo is from the highest of the multiple glacial cirques that you negotiate in climbing Mount Timpanogos in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah.
