Wildflowers in "Black and White" (Syringa)
Craters of the Moon is a weird place. I was struck by these white wildflowers against the black lava background.

See comments for the question of identification here. Thanks to Mr & Mrs dh3 and to mrh for their help!

Appears to be a species of serviceberry which is in the rose family. It sometimes grows on rocky slopes in sagebrush steppes.

Actually this is not serviceberry. Its syringa (Philadelphus lewisii), the Idaho State Flower. Note the four large white petals/flower. Serviceberry has 5 petals that are smaller.

Interesting...some of the pictures on Google are misidentified then. But the book I have on my shelf, though its pictures are lousy , agrees with you, mrh. Thanks for the ID!
