Wild Flowers at Kid Goat

We finished off our recent trip by climbing an easy multi-pitch route on Kid Goat. The weather was a bit questionable. As we climbed we could see rain showers coming in all around us but happily there was still blue sky above.
Clouds moving fast on the left
Rain coming in on the right
Stuck in the middle with blue sky and sunshine!
The hike in to the climb goes past the landfill near Exshaw so it doesn't seem all that aesthetically appealing. And on the way in, we were on a mission to climb!

It was only on the way out that we started to notice, and stop to admire, the beautiful wild flowers. (Amazingly, given my extreme ignorance of plants and my black thumb, I was able to identify most of them!)

This one, I don't know. Anyone?
