Indian paintbrush…

While the columbine is the Colorado State Flower and can be abundant around Colorado, the Indian paintbrush with its reddish-coral leaves is the state flower of Wyoming. Not nearly as common as the columbine, this Indian paintbrush appeared to be the only one in the area and was just off the pathway on the way to Trappers Lake overlook just above Scott Lake.
