Rocky Mountain Flowers

While the harsh heat of the South has already scorched many of the summer wildflowers in Arkansas, the temperate climate of Colorado fosters a myriad of blooms all summer long.

Hiking along the West Maroon Trail near Aspen, it was as if someone, Someone, scattered buckets of seeds along the way.

I know many retreat to the Rockies in the winter for the great skiing, but I believe that I will always relish the Rockies in the summer for the gorgeous flowers!
