Shangri-la

Some photos from our camping trip west of Red Feather Lakes last weekend, July 12-13.

July wildflowers

Like most of Colorado, the high country west of us got a great deal of snow last winter and spring; it’s still quite wet up there. Upside: wonderful flowers. Downside: skeeters like you wouldn’t believe.

A hike up through the forest (no trail, just bushwhacking) led us to a gorgeous spot.
