As the flowers have hit their peak bloom the local trails, alpine meadows, and peaks have been awash in a sea of pastel colors…making the Crested Butte Backcountry a spectacle of natural beauty.
Daily afternoon thunderstorms are contributing to keeping everything fluorishing and in full bloom.
No where have the flowers been in all their glory, then on the West Maroon Pass hike between Crested Butte and Aspen.
CBMG Guides took a special group on this hike between the two towns last week, and despite the difficulty of the hike (11 miles and ascending 12,500′ West Maroon Pass) the group was rewarded with incredible views of the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area and the peak of the high country wildflowers.
Many more hikes await your participation, but it is almost August, so the flowers will begin their colorful decline soon, so make sure and get out there with us soon.
