Sunflower Sunset in Rocky Mountain National Park 2

Rocky Mountain National Park

Patches of gold wildflowers fill the rocky slopes of Rocky Mountain National Park in early July. These yellow flowers, often referred to as “Old Man of the Mountain,” can often be found above treeline. They are tough to withstand the harsh elements at this altitude, but add a splash of close to a beautiful Colorado landscape. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
