Shyla leaped over a patch of yellow flowers when we were just below 13,000'.
I spotted a cluster of Sky Pilots amidst a boulder cluster. Sky Pilots are glorious purple flowers that I love to see.
They have a stinky way of keeping ants away - they smell like skunks!
I had lots of fun with the densest cluster of these flowers that I've ever seen, photographing them from every angle.
Of course, Shyla wanted me to get moving again. As you can see behind her, the snow wasn't completely melted yet. However, the exposed ground seemed quite dry despite the recent snow melt.
