Crested Butte is often called the Wildflower Capital of the world. After years of living and enjoying this area, I can say that this statement is quite true. I’ve traveled all over the world and all over the state of Colorado. I honestly have yet to find a place that tops the wildflowers that we have here in Crested Butte.
As part of the celebration of beauty, we have been posting pictures of Crested Butte wildflowers every Wednesday during the wildflower season, which is typically June through August. You can search for these on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter under the hashtag #wildflowerwednesday. You can also find them below. At this time, the collection below is only a small representation of the wildflowers in Crested Butte. We are still continuously updating our wildflower posts on social media as well as this page. So, please check back regularly.
The Crested Butte wildflowers below are generally organized by color. Note that each thumbnail image below can be enlarged by clicking on it. To return to the normal screen, simply click again on the enlarged photo.
