Wildflower Season

Wildflower Season

‘Tis the season for wildflowers here in Colorado. The timing and quality of the show wildflowers put on will vary yearly, based on such things as how wet of a winter and spring we had, temperature, and other variables. Blooms start earlier at lower elevations (May/June) and gradually move up in elevation as the summer goes on and alpine meadows melt out (July/Aug).

Below are a few taken this year on various hikes. All fun facts (well, most) are from the website Colorado’s Wildflowers.

Colombine (and lots of other flowers, too).
A Day in RMNP

A Day in RMNP

One day in Rocky Mountain National Park this past week. Some good friends were in Estes Park that I met up with later for a hike, but I figured I’d start a little earlier and capture the sunrise. For some reason they didn’t want to start the day that early 🙂 .

Bear Lake.
Fox Pups

Fox Pups

An old friend and former coworker contacted me to tell me about the fox den on her brother’s property and offered to get me in touch. I spent one early morning photographing them and wish I could have spent more. Since foxes often return to the same den year after year, hopefully I’ll have an opportunity again next year!

Colorado National Monument

Colorado National Monument

A birthday trip to the Western Slope of Colorado this spring. As long as I have lived here in Colorado, there are still so many areas to explore. Colorado National Monument was one such area, that after years of driving by it, we finally planned a trip specifically to see it.

And spring was the perfect time to visit, with few crowds and milder temperatures. The scenery wasn’t too bad, either.

The very first photo of the trip. Book Cliffs from atop Colorado National Monument at sunset.

If you are a frequent traveler through Denver International Airport (DEN), you may notice the many rotating art displays, including various photography shows. For their latest photo exhibit, My Colorado: Architecture, a photo of mine (previously shared in my newsletter) was selected.
