My first time up this ridge. Wow...

I love this place. Early enough in the season and the grasses are long and blowing in the breeze along the ridge. Flowers out everywhere. It's amazing...on one side of the ridge it's tweedii lewisia...on the other bitterroot. It's amazing to see one ecosystem on one side of the ridge, another on the other side.

This place abounds both in the variety of flowers as well as the sheer number. INCREDIBLE!
