  • Just by the timing of our trip, we found the wild flowers along Kebler Pass in July 2019 to be spectacular.  more »
  • The pass was beautiful with all of the flowers in full bloom! Lake Irwin was absolutely pristine and worth the short drive!  more »

  • Kebler Pass just outside of Crested Butte is such a beautiful place. Part of the West Elk Mountain Range. The largest grove of Aspen trees in the US. It’s equally beautiful mid summer for wildflower viewing and mid fall to see the aspens changing colors!
  • Free drive through amazing fall colors. Some parts dirt road, some almost 1 lane but lots of turnoffs to get out n take pictures
