Since I have been here, I have seen some very pretty flowers growing wild in the areas we have explored on walks and while on drives up to the nearby mountains. We are not located far from Estes Park, a town called the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. The rock formations on the side of the road are breathtaking and wildflowers are hidden here and there among the rocks.My favorite flower I have seen so far is a Showy Milkweed. I investigated on line to find out it's name. I hope to visit a paper crafting store to see if they sell a stamp of it as it would be a great memento of our time here.
