Wildflowers blooming near Stanley

The meadows near Marsh Creek along Idaho 21 about 20 miles west of Stanley have streaks of purple going through the lush green grasses.

Shooting stars are blooming like crazy in the moist meadows and with the back drop of the Sawtooths, it's beautiful.

What's not beautiful are the mosquitoes. There are lots, lots, lots, lots and lots of them. You can't get out of the car to take photos without being swarmed.

Flowers vs. mosquitoes. It's worth getting out to get the photos. Don't miss the bloom.
