Yellow unidentified flower, Round Top Lake, 9360 feet.

The flowers were just beginning to burst out of their pods.

This flower was very early. The majority of the terrain was still covered with Spring snows. Here's a picture of the snowcover from that June 2009 trip:

Round Top in early June Snow, 2009.

The Yellow Flower was taking advantage of an area cleared of snow by the absorbed heat radiating out of the surrounding rock.
