In the late spring and early summer, the wildflower guide of the app really shines. While hiking, it uses the ecosystem around you to narrow down the potential flowers so you only need to compare with a small handful to identify the flower. It also is able to determine which plants should be flowering in that area. With so many different elevations in the park, spring in the alpine and sub-alpine is much farther behind than other areas in the park, even near Estes Park.
