Wildflowers found on this hike

Mt Galbraith is a good hike to do on a cloudy day as there is no shade on two thirds of the hike. We went up after a rain, and the cloud cover kept the raindrops from evaporating for much of the day, as you will see from the wildflower photos. There are great views of Golden and of the mountains beyond. The hike is closed to bicycles and horses. This was a fair hike for wildflowers. There were large patches of mouseear across the slopes, looking almost like snow, and a changing variety of flowers as the elevation changed and exposure changed.
