Wyoming Wildflowers

Fringed GentianWhen Danelle and I went to Africa, our first guide asked if either of us were interested in birds. When we both said no, he told us that people who were tended to enjoy the game drives much more. You might not see a lion or an elephant, but you'd always see birds. I feel the same way now about wildflowers when I hike, like this Fringed Gentian.

Truly stunning photography! You could definitely sell your work! Even the more common flowers, like the clover were beautiful! Loved the wildlife too! I have been to Yellowstone (years ago), but never saw bears or any deer. Saw 1 moose cow and calf about a 100 yards away from our car.

Thanks, Lisa! I can't believe it took us this long to get to Yellowstone after living in Colorado for 13 years. :)
