High mountain…

Those words always pique my interest, and while trying to identify several wildflowers that I encountered after a brief visit to the Coeur d’Alene Mountains today I saw that they were attached to one of them; High Mountain Cinquefoil. As usual, I could be wrong in the identification, but the name seems to fit the plant.

Though I didn’t go as far as I would have liked, I did run across a number of species of wildflowers and I will likely post them in the next few days even though there are a couple that I haven’t yet identified.
