The wildflowers in the mountains were amazing beyond belief this summer. I had tons of fun photographing them but I haven't shown you very many. So, as winter is descending upon us, let's warm up with summer memories.
These are Paintbrush in a crimson color that I only see above 10,000' in the mountains. Paintbrush come in all sorts of colors but crimson is my favorite!
This was the hillside above my trail at about 12,000' feet elevation. Mother Nature is the best gardener.
Because the trail climbed such steep mountains, it had lots of hairpin curves and switchbacks, all surrounded by flowers and with craggy mountains above them.
Thanks to the LLB Gang for hosting Nature Friday.
