We left Jackson Hole driving up to Yellowstone a few days ago.
A few miles out of Jackson and into Grand Teton National Park, we both started sniffing with our noses up in the air like a couple of hound dogs on the trail of a fox.
We actually smelled this field of Lupine's about a 1/4 mile before we got to them. The field stretched on for miles with the snow capped Teton Mountain Range as a backdrop. Needless to say, it was a very good memory!
Here Cindy is sitting amongst the blooming wildflowers. The smells were intoxicating!
Then there are these little flowers; maybe one of you who is a bit smarter than I (Every one of you actually
) might know the name of them? They line the road way and make it look like it has a layer of purple along the edges.
When you pull over to look at them, they are very small. This shot was taken with my 70-200L lens with all 3 Kenko Extension Tubes on the lens. Like the other shot Luca posted in A Gathering of Friends thread where you can see my lens almost touching the flowers, this is the way it was to get this shot.
The flower is about the size of a dime
Wildest part is many of these are blooming with snow still on the ground around them. Remember we're up in elevation here in the mountains.
