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).
