I saw a post on Facebook from a friend showing that the Calypso Orchids (aka Fairy Slippers) are arriving! This is a photogenic flower for anyone interested in some macro shots.
A great location to find this flower is near the Cow Creek Trailhead on the North Boundary Trail in Colorado. The trail climbs up and over a ridge toward West Creek. On the north side of the ridge descending to the creek is the best location I have found to find the Calypso Orchids. The hiking group I was with counted over 300 a few years ago.
The stylus in this photo is pointing to the stretch of trail where the best viewing is of the flower.
