There are so many wildflowers on the tundra in Rocky Mountain National Park that I could post a new one each day for months!

Jacob’s Ladder is a delicate, lavender to blue-colored wildflower with pinnately compound leaves that look just like a ladder.

Have you ever seen a Jacob’s Ladder wildflower?

I love how the sunflowers look up to the sun on the tundra in Rocky Mountain National Park. Because of the high elevation, they only grow to about 6-8″ tall.

Pretty, don’t you think?

I have only seen Mountain Death Camas wildflowers twice in Rocky Mountain National Park and both times up on the tundra.

I looked up on the internet why they are called Mountain Death Camas and it is because they are poisonous to both humans and wildlife, thus their name. Guess I’ll stay away from them!
