High up in the Colorado Rockies is a popular hiking trail through Guanella Pass. This trail takes you to one of Colorado's "Fouteeners," Mount Bierstadt, and is laced with scenic views. I especially enjoy the Alpine flower gardens, few and far between, scattered around the mountainous terrain.
When I first viewed this, one of my iconic Colorado shots, I wondered how a single purple iris came to take residence in this field of yellow daisies. But then, after looking closely, I could see others far behind the daisies near the green shrubs.
