Indian paintbrush, larkspur and milkweed will be on full display July 26-28 when the annual Wasatch Wildflower Festival is held at ski resorts in the Cottonwood canyons.
Members of the nonprofit Cottonwood Canyons Foundation will provide guided tours all three days for hikers of all ages and abilities. "The festival is a wonderful opportunity to learn about Utah's unique ecology from local naturalists," said foundation director Jessie Walthers.
The festival begins Friday morning at Brighton Resort, then moves over to Solitude Mountain Resort in the afternoon. The scene shifts to Alta Ski Area on Saturday and Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort on Sunday.
