While camping in Maroon Bells just a few short days ago, I was in awe at the wildflowers that graced the campsite. During past visits here, there were always some wildflowers in bloom, but this year’s plentiful rainfall had the campsite bustin’ out in colors! Here are a few of the wildflowers that were in my campsite:
One of the dominant wildflowers at camp was an Aster wildflower (not sure of species). They seemed to be everywhere!
And this little bud was found growing among some of the asters, so it likely is an aster, also (see first photo, above, appears to be one of these growing in the clump of asters there, too):
A familiar wildflower from my Alaska travels, the Cow Parsnip, was also at the campsite:
Several clumps of a White Geranium were growing adjacent to the tent:
Just a short distance from the cleared out campsite area, I found many little Mountain Harebell Bellflowers growing:
And I’m not sure about this one, but it was growing among the bellflowers, so I’m guessing it also is a bud of this little gem:
And one that I have not a clue to it’s identity:
So you can see that my campsite was beautifully landscaped for me!
