Hiking season in Utah starts about the same time as wildflower season, which is to say they're both starting now.

Apparently aware of this, High Country Apps has created "Flora of the Wasatch" for your phone.

According to a company press release, the app allowers users to search for flower color, leaf type and other characteristics to identify the flower.

"Flora of the Wasatch" costs $4.99 and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, Andorid Market or Amazon.com. High Country Apps says it donates a portion of its proceeds to the Utah chapter of the Nature Conservancy.
