The Wasatch Wildflower Festival starts Friday, and hikers could be in for quite a show.

The festival, which has events in Little and Big Cottonwood canyons over three days, offers guided walks of varying difficulty. Click here for the schedule.

After a dry winter and spring, recent rains likely have helped the wildflowers. On Sunday, Tribune reporter Aaron Falk tweeted this photo on the trail to Red Pine Lake in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
