In mid-July, I spent a few days in the southern and northern mountains shooting the annual wildflower spectacle. I was also able to capture a few good night sky photos.

The first destination was the San Juan Mountains. The flowers around the Blue Lakes were just before peak condition, although there was still ice on the Upper Blue Lake.
The flowers at Stony Pass were in excellent condition
A week later, I visited the northern mountains and found some very good stands of wildflowers
While in the northern mountains, I also made several photos of the night sky
This was a good year for wildflowers in the Colorado high country, with plentiful moisture and favorable weather. It is always a pleasure to visit and soak in the beauty. To see more photos from this trip, please visit the Colorado Wildflowers 2017-07 location gallery here.
