Mountain Death Camas Wildflowers On The Tundra In RMNP

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!

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?

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?

It is always such a treat to see the pink Elephant’s Head wildflowers up on the tundra in Rocky Mountain National Park! They look just like an elephant’s head with its up-curved trunk. They love to grow on wet, high elevation meadows near streams.

Have you ever seen an Elephant’s Head wildflower?

Beautiful White-Tailed Ptarmigan On The Tundra In RMNP Last Summer

ptarmigan

We saw this beautiful Ptarmigan on the tundra in Rocky Mountain National Park last summer. It looks like it has already changed from its winter white color to its rocky brown colors to camouflage it from predators. The Ptarmigan live at or above treeline, so you will only see them at the higher elevations in the park.

Have you ever seen a White-tailed Ptarmigan on tundra?
