I went hiking on Boulder’s Spring Brook North Loop Trail on Sunday to look for wildflowers and sweeping vistas and I found both in abundance. If you are in the area and can find a couple hours and a camera this is a great place to be. Here are two free resources to enhance your experience:

In addition to the lush environment that this area provides for wildflowers, it also provides sweeping views looking north up Shadow Canyon toward Boulder’s Flatirons in the distance.
I took this panorama from the Spring Brook Loop North at GPS coordinates 39°55’40.96″N 105°16’8.88″W on May 17th at 9:20 am. Can you see the faint image of a fox outlined by outcroppings in Shadow Canyon or is it just me?
