Day 209: April 22, 2005 - Spring Flowers

by Karen Williams
I wish I knew what this flower is called, but I cannot seem to find that information anywhere. I only recall seeing it bloom in the early spring, and the beautiful delicate flowers grow in bunches. The petals are soft and thin, and seem as though the slightest wind would blow them away. I love exploring Zion in the spring, when multitudes of new flowers are blooming. They each seem to have their favorite spots in Zion, so hiking in a new area means discovering new plantlife. When I stumbled across this patch of flowers, I stayed and took a variety of pictures, trying to capture their soft, delicate beauty in the early hours of the day.

It appears to be some sort of evening primrose.

365 Days in Zion is a photo experience by Karen and Christian Williams. Together, we spent an entire year in Zion National Park amidst snow, rain, flash floods, brush fires, and the beautiful sunny blue skies that typify Southern Utah in the United States of America.
