This beauty was found in a small patch of wildflowers, growing down the pathway from where yesterday’s images of the Maroon Bells were taken:
At first glance, I wasn’t sure what this wildflower was, but resembled the Columbine. An ID search later confirmed this indeed was a Columbine. I’ve seen lots of Columbine while hiking the woodlands of Missouri, but had never seen a lavender version. Quite a beauty!
I’ll be posting more Colorado Rockies wildflowers in some upcoming posts.
