One of my favorite wild flowers is the columbine. There are several varieties. We found these growing along the highway on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. During that entire trip, we saw only this one small clump of flowers. We had no place to stop the car and so we drove to the next turn out and parked, then walked back down the road to get a photo of the flowers. It was worth stopping and worth the effort.
