Sego Lilies lit by rising Sun
Legendary sweet-bulb flower which supposedly sustained starving Utah Pioneers ... becoming pretty rare a century and a half later, but ... abundantly blooming again in the Wasatch Foothills in an unusually moist spring season of 2008.

Thanks SoCal! That's what even the scientific name says, "beautiful grass" = Calochortus :)

Maybe it was that I actually got out and saw a lot of dirt this year during training, but I saw a lot of these this spring through the summer. I saw them as low as Antelope Island and as high as ~9000 on GWT in the Wasatch...very cool pic!

This year was just amazing for spring flowers. In a dry spring, sego lilies are fairly hard to spot. What did you train for?
