LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON, Utah -- Wildflowers are in full bloom up Little Cottonwood Canyon. Thousands of flowers dot the ridge line above Snowbird Resort and hundreds of hikers tried to get a glimpse at the wildflower festival Sunday.

Wildflower enthusiasts say, unlike previous years, the panoramic views aren't quite as awe-inspiring, but the reds, yellows, and blues are fully expressed as you get close up on them.

“I'm seeing some different flowers than I've seen other years; It just depends on the luck of the draw,” said wildflower guide Jean Acheson from the  Cottonwood Canyon Foundation

The wildflowers are at their peak, but you can still see them for at least another month.
