Viewing Plants

Plant lovers have much to admire on the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and Thunder Basin National Grassland, especially during wildflower season. The season usually begins in late June and blankets mountain meadows and vast open spaces in a rainbow of stunning colors. 

While these beautiful flowers may tempt visitors to gether a bouquet, visitors are encouraged to review the Forest Service guidelines on Ethics and Native Plants...
