Grandeur in the Grenadiers

Towards the beginning of the wildflower season in the early summer months, The snow was still heavy in the alpine regions of the Grenadier Mountains of Southwest Colorado.  This particular type of violet wildflower usually comes up early and needs plenty of water to flourish. A large patch of melting snow was feeding this wildflower patch with icy cold water. 

 As the summer has progressed, the snow has once again receded with a few patches left and the wildflowers are starting to fade away once again. The cycle of life continues as some signs of fall are already starting to show up.  This only means a new beautiful season to come, one of my favorites here in the beautiful San Juan Mountains…

Thank you for viewing my site and wishing you all the best summer season!
