September Wildflowers

Amazingly, sections of wildflowers had just peaked in the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado… This is the latest I can recall and the most irregular alpine season on record. The huge winter snows and then ensuing avalanches that literally changed the landscape in areas make this a year to remember.

Thankfully I was able to capture some of these history moments and share with all of you…

I hope you also had a great season capturing you own unique moments and wish you all the best Fall season now upon us…

Late but beautiful!

The record snowfall last winter combined with cooler early summer temperatures plus massive snow slides made for an unusually late wildflower peak this year in the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado…

Finally, the wildflowers are starting to come out in the high Alpine…

More impressive and even shocking was the amount of damage causes by all the snowslides this winter… Some forested areas literally looked like a volcano errupted leveling many section of forest leaving behind large fir and aspen trees snapped at their base…. I have never seen anything like it….

Due to the unusually heavy snowfall this winter and cool spring and summer the wildflowers are behind this year… Just recently, I was able to finally find a small patch at the 12.5k elevation.

It should be another three weeks before the wildflowers reach there peak…
