Tiny blossoms, big country.

Today as I stood by the old lookout cabin at Big Hole looking out at this scene, across the miles at Baldy Mountain and beyond the roadless area with that name to the grand Mission Mountains at the horizon, I noticed also some little white blossoms at my feet.

What a wonderful setting in which to have my first encounter with these enchanting little wildflowers!
