About plant names...

Apparently Hill’s lupine is quite rare, since I cannot find much of anything about it on the web. It is found in the United States only in Arizona and New Mexico. These photos were taken along the west fork of the Oak Creek Trail, nestled deeply in a cool damp canyon near Sedona.

Identification: Not enough information to describe it.
