wildflowers at alta

The Cottonwood Canyons Wildflower Festival is not until next weekend but I went up to Alta today for a sneak preview.  There were a ton of people but most of them were taking the shuttle up to Albion Basin and walking around there; once I got on the Catherine's Pass trail I hardly saw anyone.  Here are a bunch of photos I took - I'm not nearly as good a photographer as H, unfortunately - but you can still get a feeling for what it looks like up there.  Gorgeous, just gorgeous.
