I rode up Ouray County Road 4 this afternoon and found many wildflowers, especially near the top—wildflowers everywhere! Not all of my pictures were in focus—rats! But here are four for you to look at.
Sego Lilly on Ouray County Road 4

My wife calls these Sego Lilys. The closest the flower book comes is Mariposa Lily. These are single blossoms atop a thin stem with very little else to the plant. The petals are actually nearly white, darkened here to show the texture and the slight bluish cast.
