Blazing Star
Mentzelia laeviculmis

While driving back to the Boise area from Mt. Borah, we stopped by a roadside interpretive sign in the Craters of the Moon National Monument and I saw this flower. This area is a fairly hostile desert environment with temperatures ranging from very hot in the summer to very cold in the winter.
