Arctic Gentian

Arctic gentians (Gentianodes algida) is a tundra flower that blooms in late summer. To some it heralds the coming of winter. Since it was first identified in Siberia, perhaps that is true! We saw these flowers all over the tundra in 2014. They were particularly abundant on the Arapaho Pass and Lake Dorothy Trails.
