Golden Columbine profile
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
My wife took this photo of a Golden Columbine growing at approximately
9,000 feet (2,743 meters) along Northern AZ's Inner Basin Trail.
A member of the Buttercup Family, this gem of a flower grows in
moist areas, often enjoying the overstory of conifers or aspens. It blooms
in the high country of northern Arizona between April and September, and
in years past I've seen it growing at elevations of over 3,000 meters.
