Paintbrush and Upper Blue Lake

Mount Sneffels Wilderness, Colorado, 2014

The Blue Lakes Trail takes one past three spectacular alpine lakes high in the Mount Sneffels Wilderness near Ridgway, Colorado.  In mid-August 2014, the wildflowers were the best I've ever seen anywhere.  I made this photo just above Upper Blue Lake as a storm gathered.  Another 100' or so higher, I decided not to continue climbing to Blue Lakes Pass at 12,980', a decision that was validated by hail, hard rain, and close lightning a short time later.
