When I dream of incredible nightscape visions, I often dream of things like mountain peaks, Milky Way stars, and fields of wildflowers. So when the timing looked right this year, I headed up to Crested Butte, Colorado to see if I could bring some of those visions to life.

I decided to try bringing my mountain bike this time, in a bit of a misguided attempt to scout locations in the daytime and then return under the cover of darkness ready to capture the glory. That approach didn't work as well as I'd hoped - mostly because I found myself drawn to the steeper trails that just seemed easier to hike anyway. Along the way though, I was able to confirm that the Snodgrass Trail (shared by both hikers and mountain bikers) was once again FILLED with Lupine wildflowers.

There is a lot more to this post...
