There is a reason that Crested Butte has earned the alias of “wildflower capital”. Tammy and I recently spent four days visiting some of my old time favorites, Slate Creek, Oh-Be Joyful, Maroon Bells Wilderness, Paradise Basin and the Anthracite Range. We badly needed to “Re-Boot” both figuratively and literally. The Flora could not have been more spectacular and the folks at the Rocky Mountains Biological Laboratory were abuzz collecting data. Enjoy the explosion of color and remember that the greatest adventures are in your own backyard!
