Wildflowers found on this hike

Path through bushes

A short level hike through meadows, aspens, and pine forests. This hike does not have great scenery, but it has good wildflowers. We hiked it because we had read that there were coralroot orchids, and we found them growing in the duff beneath the pines. We also saw hummingbirds, which I did not get a picture of because I am not fast enough. I have seen lots of hummingbirds at the feeders in the mountains, but seldom in the wild.
