With all the spring moisture, this was a banner year for wildflowers in the Crested Butte area. The trip, did not disappoint as the wild flowers were amazing!

The best wildflowers were found along Gothic Road, near the town of Gothic in the Gothic Natural Area. We also hiked up to Judd Falls, caught great views of Gothic Mountain and drove the spectacular Deer Creek Trail.

We hiked the Brush Creek trail which is on the other side of town where again amazing wildflowers and vistas were on display.



On the last day, we drove over Kebler Pass which is home to second largest living organism on Earth, the Aspen Grove on Kebler pass is a "clonal" colony meaning all trunks share the same exact DNA and a massive interconnected root system. After the pass, we hiked the Three Lakes Trail which as expected connects three lakes and features a nice waterfall.
