This glacier lily was part of a rather large, loose colony I stumbled into by accident in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. As I got out of the truck to take a picture of the roadside sign letting me know I was standing on the Continental Divide, patches of yellow stood out in bright contrast in the pines nearby. The sign let me know I was at exactly 7988 feet above sea level.
