Glad to have you visit Mountain Meadows Photographs. I hope you enjoy my view of nature. I am not one for a lot of words, so it is mostly photographs.

Unless noted all of the photographs are my original work.

Christmas Meadows

Here are some pictures of the Uintas taken on a recent trip to Christmas Meadows.  Still a lot of snow and the streams were running high blocking most of the hiking trails we tried.  Like every trip taken this year we were rained on.  I wonder if Texas would pay to have us visit them?

Elephant Head
(Pedicularis groenlandica)
One of the most interesting plants found in northern Utah. The flower stems grow about one foot high and bear one quarter inch flowers which look exactly like little magneta-pink elephants heads. They flower in July and August and are found damp alpine areas.
