Gauge-flation, non-Abelian gauge field inflation, which was introduced in [1] and analyzed more thoroughly in [2], is a model of inflation driven by non-Abelian gauge fields minimally coupled to Einstein gravity. In this model certain rotationally invariant combination of gauge fields play the role of inflaton. Recently, the chromo-natural inflation model was proposed [3] which besides the non- Abelian gauge fields also involve an axion field. In this short note we show that the model involving axions, indeed allows for various slow-roll trajectories for different values of its parameters: A specific trajectory discussed in [3] starts from a " small axion " region, while the trajectory considered in [1, 2] corresponds to a " large axion " region.
