Update –  August 17, 2016 – The wildflowers in the San Juan Mountains have started to fade except for the higher elevations above 12,000 feet.   Of course you can still find protected pocket areas throughout the basin.

Update – September 29, 2016 – The Aspens have peaked from Coalbank Pass to Silverton, CO.

Update – October 31, 2016 – It’s time to go to the desert as all the fall foliage has come off with little snow on the peaks.

Update – January 27, 2017 – A major month long winter storm has buried the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado with heavy snowfall covering our gorgeous peaks!

Update – March 13, 2017 – The snow has mostly melted in the lower elevations with Spring just around the corner! The higher elevations are still loaded with record snowpack levels.  

Update – July 03, 2017 – The snow is quickly receding in the high country after a record snowfall year in the San Juans with many species of wildflowers already well on their way.  It’s beautiful up there in the alpine!

Update – October 16, 2017 –  The aspens still have some color in the lower San Juan Mountians but they are quickly fading…  It is dry with means good access to the high country still… This won’t last long as it only takes one winter storm to ends this until next year…
