Confusion at 9400 feet !

"There must be some kinda way out of here .."
Said the joker to the thief.

"There's too much confusion;
I can't get no relief ..."

I found these fancy blooms on an east-facing (well-drained) slope in Utah's
Stansbury Mountains at approximately 9,400', immediately NE of Deseret Peak.

Penstemons or Pansies, or perhaps PRIMROSE ??? Can ya help a poor boy (from Arizona) out, PLEASE ???

HINT ..

If you look really closely at these flowers,
they have white hairs growing on them.

They look like Lewis' Monkeyflower to me.

Re: HINT ..

Thanks, I can really dig that.

Ummm, NOT the flowers, but your answer.

A reasonable person would have discovered
how much these blooms resemble little monkeys.

Anybody else ?

Re: Monkey Flower

Thanks .... they really leap out at me
when I was hiking to South Willow Lake two
summers ago ... yes, they were growing
right next to a swiftly running stream !
