Sure this is a geology blog, but these wildflowers …
… are fantastic!
Blue flax, Indian Paintbrush and other wildflowers near Tony Grove Lake, Cache County, Utah.
Geologists are natural historians, so of course anything natural (or historical!) fascinates us. Stephanie Jarvis showed us some flowers (and mushrooms) in Alaska this summer. Last year we looked at acacia trees in Israel. We’ve even delighted in moss, flowers and wild strawberries in Estonia. The wildflowers this week in Logan Canyon, northern Utah, are extraordinary. In keeping with tradition, I want to share a few.
