Alpine Sunflowers

Alpine Sunflowers

Alpine Sunflower is also known as 'Old Man of the Mountains' and it almost always faces the rising sun. I took this picture high on the slopes of Handies Peak not far from the summit. Summer in the San Juans, Colorado 2006.

Dit you take that flowers from home? Or are these the normal things in Colorado?

Re: unbelievable

I planted them there ;) Just kidding. These are normal things in Colorado each July. There are big alpine meadows full of alpine sunflowers. It's awesome.
