Botanizing, Grand Targhee Ski Area

The Grand Targhee Ski Area opens its lifts in the summertime so mountain bicyclists can take their bikes on the lift to the top, and ride the trails down for that adrenaline rush all speed junkies crave.  Cyndi and I went on a field trip with the naturalist, to view the alpine wildflowers.
