North of Vernal, off of Taylor Mountain Road, the hills are in bloom. Boss appears to be eating the Balsamroot, but he's really going for the green grass.
The horses are looking sleek. Mischief carries his 23 years well. I'm not riding him as much this year, but he still enjoys getting out, either with a rider or without. Sometimes we let him follow along while we ride Coco and Boss, and that's fine with him.
A variety of wildflowers adorn the hillsides: paintbrush, larkspur, wallflowers, phlox and balsamroot.
Daisy checks out a rocky ledge over Ashley Gorge. Look out, it's a long way down!
Douglas fir's cones are a deep red color when they first form. Pretty, aren't they?
Pasque flowers bloom in the shade of the aspens at 8500 feet.
