PURPLE MOUNTAIN MAJESTY by Lynn Bauer - While returning from a trip to scout a trail in Crested Butte, Colorado, I spied another trail on our drive home. A quick pull-over produced this beautiful scene of purple lupine mixed with purple asters and aspen trees at the top of the hill. Sunset was quickly approaching and the clouds were turning soft shades of pink. It was not a planned trail, but it was one of my favorite stops on our trip as the flowers were just beautiful! Crested Butte is known as the "Wildflower Capital of Colorado." It is located in the San Juan Mountains, which are part of Colorado's Rocky Mountain Range.
