Always the first of the year … the purple Pasqueflower is up all over the Rocky Mountain National Park right now. See Twin Owls, Gem Lake and Glacier Creek trails, just to name a few. In the next two weeks you’ll see it at higher elevations as well — if the snow ever melts!

Star Gentian

One of my sisters is visiting and has brought me great luck in finding wild flowers I’ve never seen before.  That includes this lovely blue Star Gentian found in the woods on Old Fall River Road. More new finds to come!
