Colorado Landscape Images - View from the Silver Creek Trailhead

Lake City, Colorado

After summiting Redcloud and Sunshine, two of Coloado's 14,000' peaks, I was on the downhill side of the hike when I paused to capture these colombine with the San Juan mountains rising in all directions around me. This path, the Silver Creek Trail, is west of Lake City and provides great views while ascending two of Colorado's prettier peaks. The wildflowers along the way were an added bonus.
