I’ve been taking pictures of the wild flowers around the cabin for years.  Last year I saw one that I hadn’t seen before but before I had a chance to check it out it had disappeared.  This year we were up a at the cabin a little earlier than usual (the end of July) and there were Sego Lilies everywhere.  So I grabbed a ton of pictures.  These were in and around our favorite huckleberry picking spot.  The variation in color from one flower to the next we pretty interesting and the colors on the pedals seemed to be painted on.  Enjoy.  By the way the Sego Lily or Calochortus nuttallii is the Utah State flower and is native to Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico.  I feel really smart now.
