Maiden's tears, or bladder campion. Silene vulgaris. It's blooming just now along the trail from Frantz Lake to the top of the mesa. One of the many reasons it's good to be home and taking regular walks again.

If that's vulgar, I'd like to see what's polite and decent!

Yeah, funny, huh? I think plant taxonomists are more warped than bird taxonomists. But only barely.
