Solstice Walk at Crimson Dawn - Wondrous Wyoming

This is the solstice view from Crimson Dawn, a local place where many people love to gather for the summer solstice - gatherings which are currently mostly prohibited...

We decided on the spur of the moment to drive up there and take a look around and soak in some of the solstice energies.

We are so lucky to live in a place where beauty abounds wherever we look in nature.

Here we see a local legend that ties this place to somewhere in Great Britain (they don't tell us much more than that...) Local lore usually gives more meaning to the place.

Below are some of the flowers we saw. I recognize a few of them - like the lupines and the Indian paintbrush, but others are totally new to me. Some of them will undoubtedly come back in natural healing posts.
