Hi, Kent,
I'd suggest that this plant is Myosotis asiatica, rather than Myosotis stricta.

Myosotis stricta is a squinny little thing, not showy and prominently-visible in flower like Myosotis asiatica.
Some examples of Myosotis stricta:

Both occur in Wyoming (Myosotis stricta as an introduced weed), but where you were, Myosotis asiatica should have been a commonly seen plant, and this photo appears to be it. (Myosotis asiatica is a very common species in the mountains here and people who hike/"botanize" in these parts, as I do, would see a lot of it.)

What do you think?
Lori
