Columbine – B/W

Here’s a quick post on an image I took this past Saturday up in the White RIver National Forest — basically the area to the north of Vail, Colorado.

Lake Isabelle 2009

Harold, Mark, Bill and I ventured up to Lake Isabelle with our cameras last Sunday to see how the wildflowers were doing. It’s about that time of the year for them to be at peak blossom. But after hiking 6 miles total (3 in, 3 out) and only seeing a fraction of what the hike usually yields, I’d say we were about 2 weeks early. And that makes sense to me, since we had had such a late, cold and very wet spring — I think the high country is still trying to dry out and catch up to its normal season.
