Thomas Lakes 2015

Due to a really wet May I was hoping to find my favourite wildflower (pink long stemmed avens) in full bloom en route to the Lakes. Interestingly they were in a very early stage and not very pretty but it was intriguing to see them that early. The rest of the wildflowers were stunning! Thomas Lakes is so accessible from Basalt; the trailhead is about a 30 minute drive and although I like to have a high clearance vehicle many people do drive 2WD cars carefully up to the parking area.

About Bronwyn

Hi. I moved to the Aspen area from Australia in 1997 and have a daughter born right here in Aspen in 2000. I teach skiing (for the past eighteen seasons) and am a Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Völkers Roaring Fork.. I love to ski, snowboard, horse-ride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
