Heading to the mountains on a daytrip last week, these are near home... about 7:30am, misty morning looking at the hills just north of us, then a hazy view on the main highway looking west to the mountains..

Looks like a gardenworthy plant whatever the name is!

Seems easy to make roads in Alberta!

Given the very late bloom and the general look of it, I wonder if it might not be an Aster?
