Colorful Colorado

Arriving in Colorado from Kansas or at DIA (Denver International), the “Welcome to Colorful Colorado” signs seem like an oxymoron.  However, as soon as you leave the taupe colored plains, climbing into the Rockies the colors begin to emerge.  The mountains have many different shades, especially in Summer when wildflowers abound in the cool alpine air.

My wife and I were fortunate to be visiting during one of the wettest summers in memory, so even the “taupe colored plains” were bright spring green.  Between the bright colors of the vegetation and the beautiful lighting provided by the thunderstorms every afternoon, this might’ve been one of the most photogenic summers in Colorado.
