The unknowns

In the region of northern Arizona not far from Page and southern Utah south of Kanab, these wildflowers were in bloom last week. I was unable to identify any other than the first (of which I included two photos), and I feel badly about that because they are really very pretty little things. In a more perfect world there would have been more time to seek out the many flowers that I’m sure I missed, and enough knowledge to identify the ones I found.
