The Colors of Colorado in Summer

There’s nothing like the colors that you’ll find high in the Colorado rockies in the summer. This year’s winter delivered the much-needed snowpack in the high country, so I’m optimistic about this summer’s wildflower blooms. One of the best locations to find wildflowers in Colorado is around the town of Crested Butte. While there are certainly many famous locations for Colorado wildflowers, many of them require serious 4WD vehicles to reach. At Crested Butte, I’ve scouted the surrounding areas and pretty much every site I visit can be reached by a standard vehicle.
