The great expanse of the Colorado Plateau reveals — to those who take a closer look — a colorful rock landscape rich with thousands of flowering plants, many of them endemic to the region. In this collection of color images, landscape photographer Larry Ulrich explores an astonishing spectrum of wildflowers, from deeply-etched canyons and intimate, shady niches to sunny rock gardens and lofty, wind-swept plateaus.Wildflowers in this high, arid region cope with daunting climate and topography. They are models of survival in a complex and challenging environment and speak to each of us in nature’s most eloquent voice. Wildflowers of the Plateau and Canyon Country includes a handy chart for locating 149 species of flowers (all of which have been photographed and reproduced in this guide) in twenty-three park and monument areas. Listed alphabetically, wildflower enthusiasts can look up flowers by their common and Latin names.
