Located in wet environments from the Front Range to the sub-alpine are the deep purple blooms of the monkshood wildflower (Aconitum Columbianum). These unique blooms are regularly mistaken for Larkspur, another common purple bloom in our area (Eagle County, Vail). Look for the distinct “hood” shape that encloses the flowers stamens allowing only a small entrance for pollinating insects.
While sprawling alpine views take the cake for timberline hikes, there is still lots to know about the flora and fauna closer to your feet. Our trained naturalists will take you to new heights, but also keep you grounded! Click here to see a detailed schedule of where you can adventure this summer!
