    Default Colorado Wildflowers

    Has anyone encountered any good wildflowers in the high country yet? I would especially like to hear reports about Crested Butte and the San Juans. With 130% snow pack, and we've been having rain, it could be a great year.
    Along the Colorado Front range, I've not seen anything great, but it is still early.

    I just spent 3 days on Mt. Evans June 13-15 photographing mountain goats, bighorn sheep and doing some macro photography in the Bristlecone forest. Spotty wildflowers there so far, but it looked like spring's showing isn't to far. -Dave-

    Dave,
    I was up on Mt Evans June 22. Yes, a few wildflowers, but at that altitude, it looks about normal for this time of year. It is only 53 miles from my hose to the summit, and I hadn't been up in a couple of years. But as usual, it didn't disappoint: many animals. In your other post you mentioned ptarmagin. Where did you see the ptarmagin on Mt Evans?

    Dave: I am in the Aspen area and the wildflowers are awesome, especially above timberline on Indpendence Pass. There is alot of fireweed at Maroon Bells. The lupine is about gone but lots of other flowers to photograph right now.

    The Ptarmagin was between the Briarcone Pine forest and the guard crossing at the bottom of the road. Sorry that this was so late. We saw several.
