Day 225: May 8, 2005 - Purple Flowers

by Karen Williams
I take a lot of pictures of flowers while I am hiking. Christian often comments on my staring more at the ground than the bigger surroundings. I enjoy searching for new types of flowers I haven't seen before, and the more I hike around Zion and explore different and more remote areas of the park, the more I am rewarded with the sight of flowers I have not previously seen. I am always interested in the variety of plantlife that exists in this somewhat harsh environment of sand and stone. As usual, I am not sure of the name of this plant. I will have to start studying botany to figure out what all these amazing plants are called.

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.
