Parry's Primrose near Berthoud Pass 718-2

Berthoud Pass, Colorado

At an altitude over over 10,000’, pink Parry’s primrose blooms beside the cold waters of Second Creek. Not far from Winter Park and in the shadow of Berthoud Pass along Highway 40, a trail leads up the mountain and follows this snow-fed creek. The hike on this late summer afternoon was beautiful, full of colorful wildflowers at every bend. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
