I was blown away by the diversity of wildflowers on the Brighton Lakes Trail, which winds past Lake Mary, Lake Catherine, Dog Lake and Lake Martha. This pretty easy and absolutely lovely trail, in Brighton Ski Resort, is less than four miles long. And apparently July is the perfect time to visit. The snow had mostly melted from the trails, there were different flowers everywhere you looked and the weather was perfect. Despite the fact that this was a work trip, hiking in the Wasatch mountains, watching sunsets on the Great Salt Lake and exploring Salt Lake City and Park City made it feel like a mini-vacation. Does anyone know what the flower on the top left is? It had a cone-shaped stalk, with lots of these insanely intricate flowers surrounding it.
