Four-Years Ago (28-May-2007) — Colorado

Early Springtime in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Images of Colorado wildflowers taken at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. In Colorado this is still early spring with the snow only recently melting. I think that these are Prairie Crocus flowers (Pulsatilla Patens). Let me know if the identification is correct.
