“Late May into early June is an in-between season in the high mountains. Late spring snow, yet to melt contrasts with early wildflowers. Shrubs reflect lingering winter colors while new green emerges as the weather slowly warms. Just south of Breckenridge, Colorado, is McCullough Gulch at the base of Mt. Quandry, one of Colorado’s “fourteeners” and a very popular, hiking destination. High alpine lakes are still to thaw but outlet rivulets are filling fast with the May melt. Further downstream, creeks and falls turn to a dramatic roar. Melting snows spread across the hiking trail making for a muddy hike this day. We won’t make our goal of that above-timberline lake today, as the trail soon becomes too deep with snow. Perhaps a fall hike is in the future with lots less snow and autumn color.” Darcie Peet
