The Skullcap wildflower was one of the first wildflowers that we saw in Rocky Mountain National Park last summer. I put the photograph aside and kept using other ones instead. I just came across it again and said to myself, “It’s about time!”

This little purple wildflower was so pretty. We saw it on the side of Cub Lake Trail on the hillside sometime last June. I took a photograph of it from the top and Phil took one from the front.

It’s a tiny, little  purple flower with a white center measuring only about 1 1/4″ long. Very pretty, don’t you think?

    Great Pictures Mel. My daughter and I are coming up this Wednesday to do some hiking. I may have to make a choice between Black Lake and Sky Pond. If so, which is your recommendation. Thanks Carl

    Carl, there is a possibility of snow this weekend. It might be hard getting over Timberline Falls on the way to Sky Pond but very pretty even up to the falls. Black Lake is beautiful but has lots of steps and some icy conditions. Black Lake may be a better bet. Good Luck! Let me know how it goes. Mel
