One of the prettiest wildflowers that grows along the Alaska Highway in both Canada and Alaska is the Indian paintbrush seen here. This bright red splash of color is usually about the diameter of a quarter or a little larger and slightly over an inch-and-a-half tall from where it perches at the top of the stem.
You can find these almost anywhere in roadside ditches, on hillsides or in creek bottoms. Blooms are generally not too close together.
