The columbine are out on the road up to Kite Lake (of course, it's finally open ;-) when you're up in the Democrat / Lincoln / Bross area. These were up on the slopes in the last 2 hairpin turns before reaching Kite Lake. There are no columbine once you get to Kite Lake and above.

From American Basin yesterday, and Alpine loop today. Not a great photographer (zero editing skills), but a pretty area right now.
