Trip to Crested Butte

Saw a post on the Rocky Mountain Nature Photographers forum that the wildflowers in Crested Butte were "incredible" so I decided to take your basic 36 hour, round-trip 560 mile jaunt to check it out and chase the light on the way. Turns out that the flowers are really starting to bloom everywhere. Looks like it's going to be an epic year, thanks to lots of snow this winter, and a mild, wet spring. From the Flat Tops to Kebler Pass to Crested Butte and Coffee Pot Road to Deep Lake on the way back, the light and the landscapes provided lots of opportunity to make photographs.
