Colorado 2008: Wild Flowers

This week I will be posting pictures from our summer vacation in Colorado. Sewing-related posts will begin again next week.
I was happily surprised to find a number of wildflowers still blooming (in August) at higher altitudes. Here are just some of the flowers we saw. I have tried to identify them as best as possible with the help of the internet, however I would appreciate any corrections! :)
Colorado's state flower: Columbine

Paintbrush (?)

Mountain Bluebells


Coneflower? or Golden Aster? or Golden Ragwort?
