I found these tiny purple daisylike flowers when we were camping at Great Northern Flats last summer. This popular campground for rafters sits across the Northfork of the Flathead River from the western edge of Glacier National Park. It was just as the sun was peeking over the mountains, which gives the photo such unusual lighting.
I have no idea what these flowers are. I’ve been looking up Montana wildflower sites, but haven’t found these. The closest flower I can find is the Alpine Aster, but that has a yellow center.
