On any brilliant late spring morning in Colorado, with the beautiful, life–affirming sounds of Dallas Creek’s East Fork rushing down from the heavens before you (actually the more earthly Blue Lakes up ahead), you can see this same view from Ouray County Road 7 not far from Ridgway.

I love this time of year, when the leafing willow bushes, scrub oaks, cottonwoods, and aspens take on every shade of light green imaginable, in perfect contrast with the conifers’ many dark greens. It’s a palette of colors that, to me, is every bit as rich and striking as that of autumn. Mount Sneffels, the undisputed “Queen of the San Juans,” presides over this lovely montane valley in the southwestern part of the state.
