Orchids At Their Peak in RMNP

Spotted Coralroot

Spotted Coralroot

These tiny orchids are found under pine trees — you need to look carefully or you will walk past without ever noticing them. They are blooming right now at about 8500 feet. Try Fern Lake Trail above the falls for Brownies and Wind River Trail for Coralroot.
