The wildflowers here are nuts. It has been a very wet few months, and all that precipitation makes for a serious show of blossoms. Last weekend when we headed to Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP, we took a side trip on a long mountain road up near Crested Butte. The flowers there were mighty impressive, although the weather made for difficult photography.
We made up for it with a hike this weekend closer to home. Kevin's mom was visiting and we wanted to go on an outing with good flowers but without the four-hour drive so we tackled the Spruce Mountain trail. There were not as many flowers in a huge mass, but plenty of variety and color and much better lighting conditions.
We are missionaries with Engineering Ministries International, based in Colorado Springs, and traveling around the globe to serve.
