Being known as the Wildflower Capital of Colorado is a distinction that carries a certain amount of responsibility. Mainly, having a lot of beautiful wildflowers. On our visit to Crested Butte last month, Gothic Road was doing the heavy lifting to prove the area worthy of the honor.
Alpine Sunflowers was a popular photo spot. Cars lined both sides of the road as folks with everything from cell phones to five-figure DSLRs captured the scene.
I guess Crested Butte gets to keep its title. :)
