Fun Friday: Been Drinking Again?

Even if you haven’t, today’s image may have you thinking you have endulged!

While hiking Mount Evans (Colorado), I came upon this very interesting and unusual wildflower. Called Little Pink Elephants, aka Elephant Heads, I found several of these plants (called “herds”) growing along the lower elevation trails.

This wildflower grows as a dense, vertical spike of distinctive magenta-colored flowers. And yes, they do resemble little elephant heads, trunk and all!
