I forgot these in the report. There were many others we didn't photograph, but these were very beautiful.

Louis, Indian Paintbrush it is! Don't ask me which species, as there are many, but I do have a book of Arizona wildflowers from when I was there in 2006, so I might be able to put a species name on it. Shooting stars are very cool, I haven't seen the purple ones but I did see a white species out in Corvalis, Oregon. Thanks for sharing!!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Jonathon, I'd seen the white shooting stars as a child in Tennessee. My dad showed them to me out in the woods near our favorite river. It was so exciting to find the purple ones! They were intense.

Yeah, we saw bunches of them, and yellow ones too, that never got a photo. But those shooting stars were stunning.
