Fraser River and Flora Creek Confluence 3

Near Winter Park, Colorado

On an overcast day, the meeting of the Fraser River and Flora Creek merge to create a beautiful flow of cold water, a result of the melting snows high up on the Contentinental Divide. A little trail just off of Highway 40 leads to this beautiful spot, but most folks are going to and from Winter Park and Berthoud Pass and don’t realize what’s hidden just beyond the pine trees.
