I lost nearly my entire summer last year due to back injury. As a result of the injury and this year's busy, busy, busy spring, I've been experiencing some mighty serious wildflower withdrawal.
Once my organized ride calendar for the year was done, I got to take time to smell the flowers. Literally. I still ride, but now I can stop and shoot. And fall in love all over again with Colorado, the mountains and all the colors around me.
The Lizard still had to train heavily for the Double Triple Bypass, which meant multiple visits to Vail Pass. Vail Pass rewarded me with a rainbow of my favorite wildflowers.
In just two months, these will be golden.
