Most of these wild flowers were picked or photographed at the base of 13,450' Horn Peak, near the Village of Westcliffe, Colorado in the Sacred valley of the Sierra Mojada. Some of the flowers were pressed and dried. We use Olympus 35mm film cameras and Olympus digital cameras with a variety of lenses.
