Wildflowers of the Rockies

This page is dedicated to you, Aunt Annette!

K’s become obsessed with wildflowers. The 5 mile hike to Wilcox Pass (next post) turned into a 3.5 hour journey as we captured not only the stunning glacial views, but tried to identify and photograph each type of wildflower!

  1. Oh, you make my heart melt!
    What a wondrous journey you both are on.
    The flowers and scenes are amazing.
    I am particularly fond of the Columbine and Fireweed photographed with such a stunning backdrops which are breathtaking. Enjoy the last bits of your adventure before you begin a new season of life up North. Much love to you both, Always Aunt Annette
