There may still be snow in the high country in Utah but down in the Salt Lake Valley things have begun to green up and I am already seeing the first wildflowers blooming.  These Pronghorn images were taken a few years ago during the spring and I thought I would share them this morning partly because the yellow flowers in these images; Gray’s Biscuitroot (Lomatium grayi), have just started to bloom this year.

It is wonderful to see the Pronghorn and Bison feeding on fresh, young shoots again after our long, cold and very snowy winter. I saw some Pronghorn yesterday and they; along with the Gray’s Biscuitroot, reminded me of these images.

It won’t be long before the Pronghorn does give birth to their young and they are about the cutest little critters in Utah in my opinion.
