Colorful Colorado Wildflowers

“You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so…get on your way!” – Dr.Seuss.

TRAVEL LOG: Clinton Gulch Reservoir, near Copper Mountain in White River National Forest, Colorado, July 2011

FIELD NOTES: Clinton Gulch Trailhead is located about 7 miles off I-70 on State Hwy 91 near Copper Mountain/Leadville, CO. It’s an easy trail, although my kids weren’t much into going all the way around the lake…so we went maybe a 1/4 of the way around. {sigh.} This trail combines spectacular wildflowers with a mountain view. You may want to check out nearby Mayflower Gulch (6.1 miles off I-70 on Hwy 91). None of the trailheads are marked from the highway, you have to pull in to find out which trailhead you are at.

My girls getting along? It must be the fresh air!

Parker is so happy to play in the lake
