You can see here that I had another flower to focus on. And there must have been some way to get closer. At least I know where to find them the next time. The yellow flowers are pretty draba, Draba streptocarpa.
Some people claim this as the state flower of Colorado. The act designating a state flower refers to the violet color. The usual suspect, Aquilegia caerulea, is clear blue. But the act also mentions "Caerulea", so to me there is little question.
