On the Way from Colorado to Utah – Nature and Wildlife 12

Mountains with snows, seen from the road


Temperature is quite comfortable for me during summer season in Colorado. C 27 (F 81) degree this time around. I used to have temperature of C 36 (F 97) degree a year round. Hot and humid.

Exciting, that we may see snow in the summer, even in the height parts of Colorado snow fall could reach 2 feet (0.6 meter) in June. Snow areas include:
- Steamboat Springs
- Grand Lake
- Aspen
- Colorado Spring areas

Colorado has plenty of ski resort areas, at least 26 resorts. Some resorts are Beaver Creek Resort and Ski Area, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Buttermilk and Copper Mountain Resort.

We might observe beautiful wild flowers along road sides from Colorado to Utah. A lot of them with colorful characteristics and types.





Sunset view of Colorado's


Flowers quite late to pop up, usually between April to May, and even in June or later months in the mountain areas.


Blue Columbine flowers

There are hundreds of wild flower species in Colorado. Just for examples are:
- Blue Columbine, actually, Columbines have several colors.
- Sand-dune Wallflower.
- Indian Paintbrush
- Subalpine Larkspur
- Fireweed


Drive all day long

Do you know that to pick Columbine flowers is illegal in Colorado? It is state flower since 1899, and illegal to pick the Columbine in nature since 1925.


Picking the flowers on public land is considered as misdemeanor, and will be punished with fines.

  14. Fiquei bastante agradado com esta postagem que nos dá conta de algumas regras cívicas do Colorado e que nos proporciona o conhecimento de algumas flores silvestres que não conhecia e pelas quais tanto me interesso.
    Enorme abraço.
