Wildflowers of the Snowies
The Snowy Range, located in southern Wyoming, packs a lot of alpine scenery into a small area. The 2nd highest road in Wyoming makes this place easily accessible and you don't have to hike far to see some of the best views. Towering granite peaks, sparkling lakes, leftover snowdrifts, and hillsides carpeted with wildflowers all add to the beauty. I was perhaps slightly late in capturing the peak of the wildflower bloom, but I found this colorful patch of fireweed above Lookout Lake. I returned early the next morning to capture this scene under better lighting conditions. But the sunrise was a bit of a dud and this ended up being the better shot.
