SPS goes Floral


I don't know what type of yellow wildflowers these are, but they are entwined with a yucca plant in Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in Utah. A nearby sign said this type of yucca only grows in a small area in southwestern Utah.

In Zion, shooting stars could be found wherever the waterfalls were. These flowers, and others, cling to walls to take advantage of the moisture seeping out, and form "hanging gardens" on the rock faces.

And here is another yellow wildflower I do not know the name of - must be something about that color :) This one was on the floor of Zion Canyon. Since we were there during spring, we were able to spy quite a collection of blooms.

That last one almost looks like "selective color"!
