The plan for our mid-July trip to the Snowy Range had been to drive to Brooklyn Lake, hike around the lake, and admire the wildflowers. Unfortunately, the Snowies lived up to their name, and - to my surprise - a number of the side roads, including the one to Brooklyn Lake, were still impassible due to snow.
That was disappointing. What wasn't disappointing were the wildflowers. As you can see, they practically carpeted the area.
