What’s Blooming in Dunton

Telluride, Colorado

Found these wildflowers on a hike (Kilpacker trail) above 10,000 feet outside of Telluride, Colorado. It's July 2nd and the wildflowers are just starting to pop up. Two miles in, had to turn around due to high water and lots of snow hiding the trail.  A raft and snowshoes would have been helpful today. Blooming at this elevation: anemone, mountain iris, columbine, sunflower, Whipple's penstemon, paintbrush, and senecio.
