It's definitely Spring here, early Spring. Most trees are just in bud but the wildflowers are in full force. There are two flowers that we've been seeing throughout South Dakota but are really abundant in Wyoming that coat the hills in yellow. In the lower elevations in moist areas are the Sweet Peas. They make blankets of yellow.
And at higher, rockier elevations there is the Arrowleaf Balsamroot. It's such a lovely daisy.
And it's fun to go chase them down off the main roads.
There are miniatures of other flowers I know like Bluebells, Phlox, and Columbine.
And then here are all the rest I am yet to identify.
I need a rock garden guide I think. as they mainly grow on rocky outcroppings where the soil is shallow. One place we stopped to see them there was a historical marker for two men that had died as a part of Custer's Western Campaign. One was from Massachusetts - he died a long way from home.
And on our drive yesterday, we happened upon this Aspen Grove and it was just magical. More of this in my next video.
