This is one of my first trips to Umtanum Canyon and we timed it just right.

Kim suggested the trip saying that around Memorial Day the wildflowers are just about right. She was right...they were at peak.

To many flowers to rattle them off but the area was covered.

This has become one of my favorite trips to do early season (for the flowers) and late, around November, to see the fall color.
