Bearberry is a low growing shrub that sprouts a pinkish white flower that will eventually form a small red berry.  The berries are quite edible and have been utilized for centuries.   Humans, birds, bears and small animals enjoy this fruit almost year round as the berries can still be found in the winter, under the snow of course.  

Jams and jellies can be processed from the ripe red fruit.  the inner seeds can be roasted to break up the outer stone like shell and eaten as a snack on the go.  Kinnikinnick's leaves are usually dried  and used as a additive to many tobacco mixtures and smoked ceremoniously for generations, also makes great tea.   

This bunch of kinnikinnick was found at 8,000 ft and was growing in abundance.  make sure to pay attention to your surroundings when harvesting any bear berries because it is true to its name because it is sought after by bears.

Planted a few Nasturtium on the 9th, left them in the windowsill to do what plants do best.
now we have spicy nutritious sprouts growing sideways because of the sun.

Wild chamomile or commonly known as pineappleweed is more common than you think.  it can be utilized  by steeping it in boiling water, possibly with some blue spruce or pine for a flavorful healthy tea.  The leaves can also be enjoyed in salads and soups or just a handy snack along the trail.  Flowers are easily recognized by the pineapple like structure and are common during july - october. 

Medicinal properties are quite common as it is a great herb for upset stomachs, fever and sores.  Flowers can be dried & ground into flower and saved for many months.   

Commonly found along roadsides and well traversed areas, it grows in  large clusters (take caution whenever picking plants for consumption along roadsides or traversed areas because of contamination and common pest control sprays)

Microgreen radish. 4 days in the world.   
Radish sprouts are pack full of vitamins and nutrition such as amino acids, omega 3&6 also great source of potassium and phosphorus. 
Growing sprouts is a fun activity and extremely healthy, for example radish sprouts are extremely tasty and a great substitute for mustard on sandwiches

Mycology
I am always very cautious about mushrooms and have yet to eat a wild one.
These are just some of the odd mushrooms we have come across in the rocky mountains.
Please feel free to identify

Stone Crop, the sweet snack on the hike.
A succulent that grows at many altitudes and usually out of the cracks in rocks and cliff sides. 
The fleshy leaves, stem and flowers are all edible and is very easily identified by its low growing yellow flowers, reddish green leaves and usually grows in clusters

Wild Fire weed in the rocky mountains.     
This plant grows in abundance, mainly on sunny hill sides.   The flowers are edible and quite sweet.  One of the uses is for pain and inflammation in brews & tonics or processed into modern medicine.   The cooked leaves make a great side dish for fish & poultry
It is told the last of the flowers of the fire weed plant will open after the last snow of the season predicting the first days of summer.
