The Flowers of Yellowstone - the yellows

I am finally getting around to posting flower pictures from our trip to Yellowstone in July.  I bought a book while we were there at the recommendation of a park volunteer called Wildflowers of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks by Richard J. Shaw with the hope that I could identify all of the species that I found, but I have found that it isn't all inclusive.  After seeing all the flowers, how could it be?  :)  I had SO many pictures that I have to divide them by color.  Yellows first....of course...

Oh, how I would love to see Yellowstone! I love that you have close up and long view pictures. What gorgeous country. The last flower growing in the rock(!) is amazing.

Thanks!
Holley, the flower growing out of the rock was actually in one of the geyser basins. I was amazed at what beautiful plants and flowers grew out of such a harsh environment.
Yellowstone was easily one of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen and would love to go again!

Great pics! I love Yellowstone. I think it's amazing that pretty much every flower I've grown in a garden grows wild there.
