I hit the jackpot hiking last week when I found these Calypso Orchids, also known as fairy slippers. This is more than I have ever seen together in one location. Had fun trying to carefully photograph them. One of the joys of hiking in the Spring is finding rare orchids in RMNP. These lovely Calypso Orchids are so small you have to look very closely along the trails this time of year. I lay on the ground to photograph them so they look larger than they are. 

There are many resources if you are looking for flowers in RMNP, the park has photos and descriptions on their website here.
