Among the many reasons why people choose to spend their free time in Ouray, Colorado, the wildflowers are certainly one of them. When it’s the time for the season, the landscape becomes a richly vivid kaleidoscope of earthy beauty, showcasing just how visually enchanting Ouray is. During your Alpenglow stay, you may wish to book a Jeep vehicle and explore one of the trails where you’ll find plenty of wildflowers to admire.
Let’s use Yankee Boy Basin as an example. This popular trail provides idyllic vistas of Colorado’s official state flower, also known as the Columbine. You’ll notice the Columbine standing close to the other beautiful wildflowers.
For thrill seekers that have plenty of years of experience under their belt in navigating treacherous terrain, Black Bear Pass awaits. The western side of the trail will wind downward into Ouray neighbor Telluride and it’s only one way, which increases the danger. On the eastern side, however, an enchanting array of wildflowers are waiting to greet you.
Imogene Basin is a wonderful choice to see wildflowers thanks to its soaring heights. If you’ve missed out on other areas because the season is close to coming to an end, Imogene Basin may be your last chance to capture photos.
