The Columbine is a resilient alpine flower. It almost seems like two flowers in one with one blooming behind the other. When my wife and I hiked to Ice Lake near Silverton, Colorado, we found fields of these and many other alpine species of flowers blanketing the entire lower basin. They painted the fields in blue, red, yellow, and purple hues.
