After my return from Zion National Park, I’ve already rescheduled a trip to the Brooks Range twice due to weather. At this point, I’m hesitant to say what I’m “going” to do, and it may be best to tell it after the fact. But for the record, I am leaving for a week in the Arctic tomorrow. So in contrast to photos of desert blossoming plants, I’ll have some Alaska material to share.
But looking back a few weeks, it was somewhat springtime in the Zion area, and the sight of colorful blossoming plants was a welcome contribution observed and photographed on many hikes. The flora of that region is unfamiliar to me, which made the sights all the more new and interesting.
Here are a few pictures from that stunning landscape.
