Nature Study: Colorado Wildflowers (Part I)

On our recent trip to Crested Butte, we took extra effort to try to take pictures and identify as many wildflowers as we could. They are abundant and breathtaking here. Crested Butte is actually the official Wildflower Capital of Colorado… which comes to no surprise when you visit this place and lay your eyes on fields of reds, yellows, blues, purples, and whites. Beautiful!

By the way, if you enjoy this post, you may also like the post from a few months ago on Orchids in Hawaii. The orchids were equally as beautiful, but in a cultivated form.
