Penstemon payettensis

Just one of the many beautiful penstemons found out west. This plant was seen in the Boise Mountains of Idaho last month.

Every time I travel through the western cordillera my spirit is renewed. Penstemons are just an excuse to get a mountain fix - at least that's what it seems like sometimes. It's hard to live in a geologically-challenged area. Ohio is definitely not a mountainous state, but there are other advantages to living here. Ohio State University and Columbus are examples....
