It never gets old. The contrast of vividly diverse wildflowers set against the backdrop of rugged mountains always enchants me. My favorite place to enjoy them is high in the Wasatch Range. This year I guided my parents through wildflower fields, past grazing moose, to Cecret Lake. The lake is nestled in Alta’s Albion Basin and is one of the prettiest places to enjoy summer’s wildflower display.
July 25th – 27th, 2014, the Wasatch Wildflower Festival celebrates nature’s artistry with events scheduled at Brighton, Solitude, Alta, and Snowbird. Guided walks, beginner through advanced and for kids will give visitors a looks and the prettiest displays in each area. Other events, such as live music, add to the festivities. A nice feature of the festival is the availability of lift access to the higher sections of some areas.

While there is nothing wrong with jumping in the car and visiting any of these spectacular displays, a little forethought can make your wildflower hike even more enjoyable. Here are some suggestions.
While I am impatiently counting the days to ski season (114 days, 18 hours, and 17 minutes at the time of this writing), summer’s display is easing my pain. I hope that you’ll find the same solace in the beauty of the high Wasatch.
