Default Wild Flowers of the Colorado Trail


I just got back from backpacking for 3 weeks on the Colorado Trail. Here is a sampling of the wildflowers of those Rocky Mountains: Flowers and Trip Reports from the Colorado Trail

I started in Durango and finished at Cottonwood Pass. Overall, I feel like I experienced the best of the CT. The Rockies are massive mountains of rock that present a unique beauty. The challenge is elevation. I spent most of my time above 12000' which really slows the progress for a lowlander Oregonian.

13,271 ft ... the high point of the CT. Last time I was in Colorado our time was mostly spent at 11,000 ft+. We live at sea level... it took some serious accommodating to adjust to that elevation. I was dizzy for a lot of the trip.

This was an epic trip you had. Stunning pics... thanks so much for posting it.

Not sure how I missed this report. This is such a beautiful area! It's where I learned to love camping and hiking. And skiing.
