Rocky Mountain Wildflowers

By
Real Estate Agent with Novella Real Estate

Last weekend my friend Emelyn Morris Sayre and two other nice ladies took a 3-day weekend to visit the Wildflower Capitol of Colorado, Crested Butte.

Most people who know of Crested Butte think of it as a ski town, which it is.  But in the summer the town is even more famous for being the Wildflower Capitol.  For a few weeks in the summer, it is simply amazing!

View my collection of photos and tell me what you think!

Thank you, Jeanne, I don't know why you couldn't see it!  I redid it just inserting the photos as opposed to using a sideshow from Picassa.

Kristal, your photos of Crested Butte in Colorado are absolutely fabulous! Reminds me of summers spent there many years ago. I can almost smell the air!

Kristal, magnificent photos, I cannot believe they were taken over a three day period.  What a variety of colours...

Thanks Jane, I like that one too!  Wish I could have tried more like that but I was driving and very concerned about staying out of the way of others!

Hi Maria,  I bet your summers were wonderful!

HI Chris, we could see the flowers losing their beauty by the last day.  I bet this weekend won't be as magnificient.

Thanks Patricia!  I love the thumbs up from you!
