Wildflowers were photographed from Rocky Mountain National Park to the Mosquito Range, and from Crested Butte to the southern San Juan National Forest Region. Clear, detailed photos depict some of the most common as well as some uncommon wildflowers that one might find along trails, open meadows and roadsides. The 225-plus wildflowers in the guide are grouped with color-coded page edges indicating sections of white, yellow, red and blue/purple flowers to help in quickly locating an unknown wildflower. Included also are descriptions of the Colorado Rocky Mountain Life Zones, illustrations of leaf shapes and inflorescences, and an index of wildflowers by color. This guide is the perfect size for taking along on camping and hiking trips in the Rocky Mountains.
Research, identification, text and illustrations are by Linda Nagy with photographs and book design by her husband, nature photographer Bernie Nagy. Published and distributed by High Country Artworks, P.O. Box 1795, Fairplay, CO 80440.
Review: The Rocky Mountain Wildflowers Field Guide by Linda and Bernie Nagy is a valuable companion to enrich your Colorado hiking experience. As a family physician, I highly recommend regular exercise in nature and this light-weight pocket guide is easy to use to identify hundreds of wildflower species in the Rocky Mountain region.
