The white Miner’s Candle wildflowers are so pretty when they bloom in the summer. But, watch out! All of those little white “flowers” are really prickly thorns. And they do like to stick you if you get too close.
I saw this Miner’s Candle from last summer on the Black Canyon Trail in RMNP. I thought it was so pretty how the light shown on it. I wonder if another Miner’s Candle will growing the same place this year? Have you ever seen a Miner’s Candle?
I pulled up a photograph of a Miner’s Candle in bloom from last summer. Quite different, don’t you think?
