When hunting wildflowers, the best places are creeks. Lakes are almost as good. Today I found all three.

The trail today was an easy hike up to the Rainbow Lakes area of the Indian Peaks Wilderness at about 10,200 feet. This is a series of small lakes and beaver ponds connected by a small stream that is a tributary of North Boulder Creek.

It was a beautiful clear day in the mountains. The temperature was at least 20 degrees less than the 90s in Boulder.
