Access to the high San Juan Mountain alpine finally opened up which revealed plenty of snow left over from winter. I climbed to around 13k and was rewarded with a gorgeous sunset.
I was also pleasantly surprised to find a few early wildflowers already in full bloom which provided for a somewhat rare combination of the early summer foliage starting to replace the harsh winter snows. I’m sure after the near 100 degree weather we’ve had lately that the snow fields are mostly melted with many more wildflowers shooting up fed by the fresh snow melt. It was one of the more rewarding trips I have taken in awhile and I can’t wait to go back up really soon!
