Balsamroot Wildflowers on the Snow King Summit

Balsamroot Wildflowers on Snow King

The wildflower and bear activity may be beginning to wind down (with some rather absurd restrictions being enforced by the park service, but I won’t get in to that now), but I was able to capture a few wildflower scenes before they all retreated from the valley.

Last week I headed up to the summit of Snow King to get the last of the balsamroot before they began to die off, as well as on the other side of the mountain along the Josie’s Ridge trail. The shots I got from Josie’s Ridge didn’t come out quite as nice as I had hoped sunset would offer from there, but I was happy with some of the shots from up top of the mountain. One such shot was around dusk overlooking the National Elk Refuge and Jackson Hole. Hopefully the snow begins to melt much quicker so I can start getting higher up in the Tetons soon!
