Patrick and I are off to Colorado early tomorrow morning. We'll be gone for ten days so neither of us will be blogging for a while. We'll be in Vail for a week then off to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park for the last three days. Patrick found a wonderful hiking book geared towards wildflower lovers and he's done some research on Rocky Mountain birds. Check out his most wanted bird at The Hawk Owl's Nest. As for my most wanted wildflower...it's tough. There will be so much to see that I'm already overwhelmed and we're not even there yet! I would like to see Elephant's Head Lousewort. It's a cool and unique plant that really does look like little elephant heads. It should be pretty easy to find since I've read that it's a fairly common plant. Be sure to check back after the 27th for reports and pictures.
