These flowers...

don't look like Mountain Bluebells.
Also, mountain bluebells grow only in wet areas below alpine zones.

Re: These flowers...

Sorry...I guess I'm not exactly sure what they are. I can't define it in my wildflower book.

Re: These flowers...

No problem. Since it is more of a photo of Mt. Lincoln identifying them it not critical ;) Great shot, by the way.

PS: If you have a close up of these flowers I can try to help.

Great shot!

Beautiful colors. Very nice contrast between the sky, the talus, the peak, and the flowers.

Re: Great shot!

The entire place was completely desolate, expect for this patch of flowers. Weird but cool.
