On Sunday, the latest edition of the Utah Bucket List is about wildflowers. Good timing.
Now is the time to see the wildflowers in Albion Basin.
I went up Little Cottonwood Canyon with my daughter on Wednesday, and the flowers are about as lush and diverse as I’ve ever seen.
We focused on the area around the Catherine Pass trail and saw:
• Little sunflower
• Sticky geranium
• Coyote mint

• Fendler’s meadowrue
• Colorado and Western columbine
• Leafy Jacob’s ladder
• Nettleleaf horsemint
• Blue flax
• Wasatch Penstemon
• Mountain snowberry
