Field Trip

Our Sunday evening hike in Garden of the Gods turned into a field trip! When we "stopped to smell the roses", we found so many amazing flowers and bushes that can easily be overlooked when one is on a "strictly for exercise" hike.
The plants that produce the curly stems are called mountain mahogany bushes.
