In this set of pictures the flowers are as follows-
1. purpley-pink blossoms- as is stated below, are shooting stars, Dodecatheon meadia
2. bright firey orange blossoms- Indian Paintbrush (also identified by someone else I believe), Castilleja
3. Yellow Flowers- these are probably Aarowleaf Balsamroot (balsamorhiza sagittata)- though they could also be Mules Ears.
4. 3-Petaled Lily- Sego Lilly- (already identified), Calochortus nuttalli
5. White popcorn-like blossoms- Yarrow, Achillea millefolium
6. Purple 5-Petal blossom-maybe a type of mallow or sorell, hard to tell without a better view of the leaves and stalks.
