Columbine at Cascade Falls, Indian Peaks 1

Cascade Falls, Indian Peaks Wilderness

Colorado wildflowers bloom along the trail to Mirror Lake and Lone Eagle Peak. This patch of columbine, Colorado's state wildflower, was exactly 5 miles from the trailhead and made for a nice place to pause, take in the beauty of the Indian Peaks wilderness, and then keep on trekking.
