High Altitude Flora and Fauna

Marmots were in short supply during our tour of the Rocky Mountain National Park (we found this one sunning himself on a giant pile of granite) but mule deer were plentiful.

Tiny flowers, better suited to withstand the punishing winds of the alpine tundra, came in amazing variations.

Moss and lichens added to the carpet of color.
