We have just returned from 2 glorious weeks at our winter home in Crested Butte, Colorado. The flowers were beautiful again this year, especially with the amount of snow we got this past winter. Though it is nice to be back at the ocean on Long Beach Island, NJ, I do miss the beauty of the Colorado mountains in the summertime. How very fortunate we are to be able to enjoy two such different, yet special places.
Snow remained in the valleys of the mountain passes.
Mountains reflected in clear, high lakes.
A few Glacier Lilies remain at higher altitudes despite the warm summer temperatures.
One of my favorite mountains, Gothic Mt., peaking above the wildflower field.
