Indian Paint Brush or Castilleja to her friends

Among wildflower fields of the Rockies, bright red splotches of colour are often the alluringly named Indian Paint Brush plants. The North American Indians used the plant as both a source of ood and as a medicine with the scarlet plant also being Wyoming’s state flower.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
