Mountain Gentian
In 2015 I spent a wonderful week in Silverton hiking and 4-wheeling with my husband. I have been collecting wild flowers since I was 6 years old. The flowers in the San Juan Mountain are incredible and this summer was to be my last with my wonderful husband and best friend of 25 years. He loved the San Juan Mountains and took me there on my first winter camp trip in March 1991. We returned almost every year since then in the winter, summer or fall to relax among the high alpine meadows and peaks. These images bring back happy memories of love and laughter in high places.
