Trail of Gold
24 x 36 x 0.25 inches (L x W x D)
At the base of Fremont and Vail Pass in the Colorado Rockies, a short section of this bike trail that we ride many times a week has an absolute profusion of wildflowers in July and August. It is such a color surprise and so dramatic, bikers and people walking the trail often stop to take photos of these huge mounds of billowing, yellow daisies sprinkled with sky-blue flax and occasional spikes of magenta-purple penstemon.
