Hiking at Brooks Lake, Wyoming

We camped in Wyoming at a mere 8300 feet (we live at Old Faithful which is 7300 feet), but the hiking trail started at 9030 feet. So beautiful! So MANY flowers!!! Loved these white bottle brush looking things. They are called American Bistort and they are from the Buckwheat family. The flower book says (we have an autographed copy by Steve Hegji), "...very common in alpine meadows and creates a beautiful contrast, in both color and shape, to the other flowers in the meadow. It looks a bit like a giant Q-tip sticking up above the other plants." Love.
