Look at the 'Forget-me-not'.
NOT the alpine variety. I have seen them up to 3' tall and at an 8.5K altitude.

I came close without looking it up but here is what I think yo have seen:

Hackelia floribunda – Borage family - Tall Stickseed – False Forget Me Not – Stout, erect, 2-5’ tall – numerous bright blue flowers with yellow centers – each flower = 4 small nutlets with rows of barbed prickles down the edges.

From – A field Guide to Rocky Mountain Wildflowers – Craighead, Craighead & Davis

Nope. The flowers are all close to the central stem.

Thanks. I'm not so sure that it's a wildflower.

Ah, Stickseed. Good name, the flowers are so pretty the seeds not so much! They cling in large bunches to dog and cat hair, so hard to get off. Same with clothes and they have stickers for your bare fingers!

Aspenleaf---your top photo leaves look like Leafy Jacob's Ladder. The bottom photo close-up of the flowers show radically different leaves with almost what look likes a flax---but the leaves don't go with a wild flax.
