I find this flower all through the summer in the mountains of Utah about 6,000-8,000 feet in elevation. I apologize, Ive never used Flickr, so am struggling with it, but I have linked the two photos that I have below. I have exhausted all my other resources i typically use to identify a plant. I am coming up empty with this one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, the thing looked like a waterleaf, so I groped around on line for pictures of Hydrophyllums that occur in Utah. Fortunately there are not too many. Phacelia would have been my next guess. There are lots of those. Anyhow, how about ballhead waterleaf, Hydrophyllum capitatum? The flowers can be either white or blue. And the leaf looks about right.
