While in the Alaska Basin last week up in the Jedediah Smith Wilderness of the Teton Mountains, we were treated to a nice sunset as some higher clouds began lighting up above the landscape. In addition to the large variety of wildflower displays that were out in the area, there were also many boulders which provided a natural barrier to the Alaska Basin Lakes. Some of the lakes are leftover from snow melt, others are fed by creeks coming from the peaks surrounding the basin. In virtually every patch of grass in between the boulders and rock poking out of the ground were wildflowers. A nice treat was also a three-quarter moon making an appearance over the southern peaks.
