you know...I never new that this was skunk cabbage....I have a picture somewhere in my photos..(pics)
A few years ago someone on Summitpost pointed that out to me on one of my other pictures that had skunk cabbage in it.
This photo doesn't show skunk cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus), it shows Indian Poke (Veratrum viride).
I am by no means a botanist. You are using scientific names so I suppose you know what you are talking about but I googled "Skunk Cabbage Colorado" and I saw the plant shown in this picture. I googled "Indian Poke", a lot of pictures came up most of which did not look like what you see above.
Google image search will find plenty of incorrectly labeled photos.
Try looking up skunk cabbage and veratrum directly on a site like the USDA PLANTS database.
Skunk cabbage has very broad leaves and essentially no stem, making it look rather like cabbage (but without the tightly-wrapped "head"). The plants in your photo have stems about three feet tall, and less-broad leaves with ribs.
If you go back soon you will find that some of your plants have small greenish flowers at the top (with threefold symmetry - it's related to lilies). Skunk cabbage has foul-smelling large purple-brown flowers at the base (a large purplish sepal wrapped around a fat pale spike structure holding the actual flowers - it's related to arums), and blooms in early spring.
Changed to Indian Poke.
