Crested Butte 2015

Wildflowers en route to crested butteThe rain all May had me thinking that this would be the best wildflower year EVER! So I really wanted to do the Crested Butte hike around the beginning of August but couldn’t make it until yesterday…… turned out to be perfect timing!!!! I have never seen the flowers like this before. It turned into an eight hour hike with nearly 200 photos along the way (normally it is a 6 to 6.5 hour hike for me over West Maroon Pass starting at the Maroon Bells trailhead – I am not a particularly fast hiker!). My daughter couldn’t come and I was sad for her to miss this amazing display of stunning beauty but I did make a Shutterfly book 🙂 It was Todd’s first CB hike and I told him he truly got the best of it!wildfloers - crested butte hike

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!
