I loved the inspiration of company to do something I might not otherwise. It’s wildflower season, and my visiting sister was the perfect excuse to go to a beautiful alpine locale for a hike, this past weekend.
Mother Nature was definitely putting on a glorious show for us: I was in awe of all the beautiful flowers we found along the way. Here’s a peek at just a few:
We found this amazing example of nature’s gardens hiking along the Alpine Tunnel trail, which also offered beautiful panoramas
…and the railroad grade is perfect for visitors from sea level (you can even see the old railroad ties in some places, too).
Visitors or no – I encourage you to get out and enjoy the ‘special’ that your backyard has to offer in the summer. It’ll be gone before your know it.
