    It was over 95 F in Denver and below 60F here. You could touch snow. And we were above the tree line.

      Slightly back from this spot, I take this same shot every year once a month from late May to early September. Someday, I'll do a little video of all the shots over 20 years or so (I hope!). Lovely. Glad you made it. I hope you saw all of my favorite cushion plants along the trail.... I was there last weekend and many of them were just starting the bloom. Silene acaulis being my favorite...

      Yes! I saw a few. Some were just starting.

      Did you see the alpine forget-me-not??? It's SO small and so beautiful! I study the Silene in real life, but love the Eritrichium just as much...

      I don't think I did. But I saw lots of really interesting stuff.
