Mules-Ears (Wyethia)

This flower is also known as “Green Dock”. It is a coarse perennial plant, 1 to 2 feet high, with a thick, woody tap root. The leaves, shaped like the ears of a mule, are dark green, smooth, stiff and leathery, and are often covered with a sticky substance. The outside (ray) flowers of the head are bright yellow, petal-like, 1 to 1-1/2 inches long, 10 to 15 in each head. The small inner (disk) flowers of the head are numerous, bright yellow and tubular.

Valley Below

Towering above Cache Valley below, the Wellsville Mountains stand at 9372 ft – Photo Taken June 2009 – Logan Utah

Extremely rugged they are considered by some to be the steepest mountain range in the United States. The range is very narrow, only about 5 miles wide at its widest point, and rise from 4,500 ft. on either side to an elevation of 9,372 ft. at Box Elder Peak. The range has no foothills so from either side it appears to be a giant mountainous wall rising directly from the valley floor. Source: Summitpost.org
