Lori, you get around, fresh off the heels of the Facebook thread by Panayoti, and the mystery Antennaria, this indeed looks just like A. aromatica, with foliage as good as any Eriogonum.  This species is found in Alberta. Nice photos and specimens.

I was very interested to see that discussion.  With that help, and the simplified keying-out info in the Pojar and MacKinnon book, Alpine Plants of British Columbia, Alberta and Northwest North America, I think I can finally put a name to this incredibly beautiful alpine!  Thanks for doing the sleuthing, Mark!
