Alpine wildflower heaven
July 20, 2015
Crested Butte, Colorado
On a perfect Colorado day, we headed up Gothic Road to see the changing wildflower show. The delphinium and cow parsnip are just starting to drop their leaves but I found a few good ones.
Paradise Divide, at 11,500 feet has an amazing assortment of alpine wildflowers.
I love the Elephant’s Head….. They are belly washers to capture.
The silvery lupines are sparse this year, so I was thrilled to find this clump with some beautiful marble the area is famous for. Marble, Colorado is just over the other side of the Divide.
The view at the top of the Paradise Divide ( 11,550 ft elevation) is amazing with a few Elephant’s Head for you to enjoy.
