    That doesn't look like the indian paintbrush that I know. It actually looks like a type of invasive dandelion relative, I've forgotten its name. But it's a member of that family.

    Notice how little this plant looks like the one you photographed:

    I googled it and leaned that there over 200 species of plants within the genus Castilleja

    http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castilleja

    So I tried to narrow it down to the region in which I live. As far as I could tell, what we have is Castilleja coccinea. This is what we grew up calling them.

    Yeah just reviewed a pamphlet of invasive plants and that does look like Orange Hawkweed to me.

    I googled it http://http://www.co.silverbow.mt.us/weeds/hawkweed.asp

    The flower looks the same but the leaves look a little different. Anyways, I was taught that this plant, whatever it is, is called, "Indian Paintbrush".
