A carpet of lupine beneath a canopy of aspen

Every summer, a dense carpet of lupine thrive beneath this canopy of aspen found on the south facing slopes of Ashley National Forest outside of Vernal, UT. One can drive the dirt roads throughout the forest and find patch after patch of this wildflower. Lupine peak at higher elevations once the snow as melted and there is plenty of water in the ground. Once the summer sun dries up the excess moisture, these beautiful flowers quietly disappear.
