Great photos!

Perhaps one of you Colorado-types can help me with this one below? I haven't seen it before, and I can't find it anywhere! I've seen it several times now in northern NM, always in wet areas. It's pretty small.

My wife and I drove up to the Flat Tops last weekend and the flowers were amazing.

We were up in the Flat Tops for Devils Causeway and the wildflowers (especially the columbines) were amazing.
