“Tundra Garden”

This is the time of year when I can drive to the tundra at Rocky Mountain National Park.  The tundra area is 12,000 feet high and a very harsh environment.  There are no trees and the wildflowers that grow are only about an inch in height.  Yet, there is a delightful garden during the summer growth season.  Below are the buds of the Moss Campion ready to burst with one lone wildflower already in bloom.  This is the time of year when I practice macro photography and learn to experience, again, the great quality of patience.
