Late June and I was back in the high country of the San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado for the first time this summer.
After a stellar day at Lizard Head Pass, I was off the next morning to Ridgway, Ouray, and Durango.
Maybe I got started too early, after photographing the Milky Way during the middle of the night. Because shortly before dawn I pulled over for a nap. Afterward, the sun was rising and I could see all the early summer wildflowers in bloom in nearby pastures.
I had chosen my pre-sunrise nap location well, it seemed.
Photo location: Ouray County, south of Ridgway, Colorado.
