That penstemon looks like it's actually utahensis. Eatonii usually has kinda wavy leaf margins and the the petals spread out less and are more tube-like for the whole length. Both are awesome :twothumbs: There are some great pics and descriptions at swcoloradowildflowers (which is outstanding if you haven't stumbled across it):
