Colorado Flower Project

For several years now I have been documenting photographically all of the wild flowers found around Guffey. Identifying these specimens can be a tricky business, since the environmental conditions in this area are very atypical, and many species that "should" be here are not, and many others are common but shouldn't be.

Included here are a just a few images from my growing collection. If you think something has been misidentified, please let me know. I'm not a botanist.
