Colorado Favorites 2014

Early June 2014, my annual visit is only 2 weeks earlier than the past few years, but the difference in the desert is incredible. The Colorado National Monument is a desert in bloom - everywhere. Then the next day, hiking in the Grand Mesa National Forest. Desert in bloom one day and snow drifts over 11,000 feet the next. These are some of my favorites with links to the full galleries below.

For the desert in bloom see the Colorado National Monument gallery and the Echo Canyon and No Thoroughfare trail galleries. For the mountain hikes, see the Grand Mesa and Crag Crest Trail galleries.
