Old Man of the Mountain


This flower is actually known as the Old Man of the Mountain. That seems to me one of the coolest names for a flower. It is a high alpine flower you can find all over Colorado’s high country. Perhaps the rugged name refers to its endurance to thrive in such a hostile environment. I took this picture while my wife and I climb to the summit of La Plata Peak.
