Alpine Potpourri

Up above treeline there is an amazing mix of teeny flowers — most only 1/3 inch across. They huddle between the boulders. Clockwise from top left: Alpine Forget-Me-Nots, Alpine Paintbrush, mix, Alpine Sandwort, Moss Campion, Featherleaf Fleebane.

Alpine Forget Me Nots

About the size of a pencil eraser, this is one of the prettiest flowers you will find at 11,500 feet. I took a GREAT class this weekend at the Rocky Mountain Conservancy … You will be seeing a lot of photos, like this one, from that class!
