Follow along and explore the flora of the dry steppe to the moist mountain meadows, only scratching the surface of the diversity to be seen in a small area of north western Colorado. Flora growing among the summer temperatures and drought shortly replaced by patches of winter 's remnant snows by only traveling what seems like just around the bend in the road. Come along for the rides and hikes!
