Little Thompson Peak (5)

Perhaps in another year or two I will visit the Thompson Peaks again to view the progress of renewal. In the mean time, here is a sort of medley of views from the top of the peak and the flowers found throughout the area, shown in no particular order.

Nature seems to have a special fondness for the bare areas just off the very top of mountain peaks on their south sides and often adorns such places with flowers.
