	When one visits the majestic mountain of Pike's Peak, the basic two choices to get to the top is to drive the twisting road or take the tram.  I prefer to drive which allows you the freedom to explore, particularly on the descent.  This particular unknown species was found as we left the alpine region and entered the sub-alpine zone.  The puffy flower, which resembles a huge dandelion, was about ready to allow the wind to carry it's seeds to another location so the fragile  life on the mountain could continue.
