Summit County abloom with color

FRISCO —For the past few days I’ve been posting landscape-level views of the incredible wildflower display that’s under way at the lower elevations of Summit County, so I thought it would be fun to zoom in a little bit and show some of these characters closeup. I found more than few beauties, some right out in the open along the trail, and others a bit more reclusive in small pockets of good habitat. Get out and enjoy the show while you can, because they aren’t going to last forever!
