Hunting for Pasque Flowers

Friends, today i am going hunting for Pasque flowers in Crex Meadows.  They are a wild Crocus and typically are the first wildflowers to bloom in the spring.  Some years they have to battle the lingering snow and can be found on the south facing slopes of Crex.   When I find them blooming, you can find me on my belly and face to flower about 4 inches off the ground. The glow from within is from the bright yellow insides and the blue is only visible when the buds first open.  The blooms soon fade in the spring sun to almost white.  Wish me luck til Tomorrow MJ
