On Labor Day weekend of last year my wife and I took a trip to her families cabin in southwestern Colorado. The cabin's location is great as there are several mountain passes in the area. This image was taken from the same mountain pass as the panoramic image a few posts down, Molas Pass. In my typical fashion, I was so focused on one image that I walked right by these flowers without noticing them. Wendy stayed atop the pass while I hiked down and shot the panoramic. When I was finished she pointed to the flowers and asked me to take a photo of them for her because her camera phone wasn't doing it justice. It is funny how these things work out because this is one of my favorite images from that trip.
