The road into the beaver Meadows Trail in Rocky Mountain National Park is packed with wildflowers this summer! They are just gorgeous.
I loved this photograph of the Leafy Purge wildflowers with Longs Peak as the backdrop. It doesn’t get much better! Wow!
Leafy Purge is a perennial that grows in dense patches to about 4 feet tall. Its stems are erect and slender and its yellow flowers have 2 leaf-like bracts. I had never seen Leafy Purge before. Have you?
It sure made for a beautiful photograph in the mountains.
PS Beware! It can be poisonous to livestock, elk and deer.
