Signs of Spring – San Juan Mountains

It’s been a record breaking dry Winter but nature goes on with a touch of green grass coming up providing these Elk with a nutritious treat as they wait in the lower elevations to give birth to their calves in early May.

Solar Eclipse 2017

This was the perspective from my vantage point high up in the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado. It clouded up during the peak but fortunately a little hole opening up in the heavens and showcased the crescent sun barely visible seen in the upper center section of the photo. The darkness in the middle of the day was like nothing I had ever experienced. Totally different then just an overcast day. You could tell something unique was occurring… This photo was shot during the peak of the eclipse.

Peaked Wildflowers

 

Add some rain to the warm summer days in the high alpine of SW Colorado and the wildflowers quickly blow up into a beautiful symphony of color.

That is exactly what happened here in the San Juan Mountains.  It’s beautiful up there with most areas peaked!

If anything, we are getting too much rain which can make hiking pretty dangerous especially in the afternoon.

Hope you are all getting a chance to get out to your favorite spot to enjoy this epic time of year!
