It’s wildflower season in the Colorado high country! Get out and enjoy nature’s color palette.
This is an image from Shrine Ridge, looking Southwest towards the Ten Mile Range with Peak 9 & 10 (of Breckenridge Ski Area fame), Crystal Peak, Pacific Peak (the pointy triangle), Atlantic Peak, and Fletcher Mountain (left to right). This is a beautiful 3.5 hike through alpine forest and wildflowers from the trailhead on Shrine Pass road near Vail Pass. The Lupine and Indian Paintbrush seen here were just getting started last week, so the blooms should be perfect this weekend. Enjoy!
