Though Spring is typically the best time to see wildflowers, Utah’s display can be summer-long. Often the best viewing is in mountain meadows and along rural highway fence lines. OR, as many Utah bed and breakfast inns have discovered, wildflower gardens are often a solution to having beautiful gardens in Utah’s arid climate.
Some great places to see wildflowers:
Albion Basin at the Alta Ski Resort, at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon, is just east of Salt Lake City. Late July is really the best viewing time.
Along the Mirror Lake Highway #150 east of Kamas. If you are lucky, you may see a moose.
Along the roads and pathways in and around the FIVE National Parks located in Southern Utah.
Whether surrounded by lush garden greenery or among rocks in the high mountain desert, utah’s wildflowers are not to be missed. When visiting a Bed and Breakfast Inns of Utah (BBIU) member inn, ask the innkeeper for information on their favorite wildflower viewing spot.
