Hey all!

Just got back from a backpacking trip up in Northern NM. These photos were taken at approx. 11,000'. Was wondering if anyone could help me identify the flower and/or the succulent(?).

Thanks in advance!

The first one looks like a Columbine but since I can't see the foliage I'm not sure I have no idea what the second one is

Ah yes, definitely a Columbine. I've only ever seen the red-flower variety many years ago. Thanks!
