Yesterday I posted a few pics of the big creatures we encountered, today I post a few of the small living things who greeted us as we edged along the Eastern side of the Rocky Mountain National Park.
1. A Swallow Tail Butterfly
2. A Ground Squirrel (looking right at us)
3. A Columbine (the State flower)
4. A Morning Cloak Butterfly
Tomorrow we pick up our race bibs. I’ll post some course details and a weather report for those of you who’ve been asking about the air quality (due to the nearby forest fires).
