Our little corner of the world isn’t just pretty, it’s audaciously awe-inspiring with expansive views of varied environments and natural wonders all around, especially in spring when the wildflowers are blooming. Here’s an image of a hillside covered with Arrowleaf Balsamroot as the morning sun casts long shadows and wispy clouds seem to interact with the trees.
