Wildflowers along Ouray, CO, CR 4
Gary and I hopped in his Polaris RZR side-by-side for a little adventure last Friday. Our first stop was to photograph wildflowers (see above). I couldn’t take the motorcycle, given my arm is still healing (though at last out of the sling!), so I was quite happy to be Gary’s passenger. We did a nice exploration of the CR 2 / CR 4 system, which weaves in and out of Billy Creek State Wildlife Area. I had fun piloting the RZR for awhile and am pleased to report that the trail instinct remains, even if my arm isn’t quite up to piloting a motorcycle.
We were at maybe 8000 feet elevation. These are not the high-country wildflowers. We’ll see those in July and August. I’m hoping that the late rains will encourage the high-country wildflowers this year.
