Wildflowers found on this hike

Trail Ridge Road winds through Rocky Mountain National Park, starting down in the meadows and going up above treeline. Along the way there are pull offs so motorists can admire the view. I took pictures of the wildflowers growing beside the road. Down lower they were the typical ones growing beside any Colorado mountain road, but even in Colorado, there aren't that many roads that make it up into the tundra as this one does.
