And whats going on at this years festival, which kicks off today and runs through July 12? Theres a much-expanded hiking program, including a day-long hike between Crested Butte and Aspen; there are also kid-friendly events and family activities. And David Inouye is returning to present his talk about climate change and its impact on wildflowers.
This years rain, for example, has been very good for the flowers. Its going to be exploding here; the flowers are going to be spectacular, promises Wallace. For more information, visit www.crestedbuttewildflowerfestival.com or call 970-349-2571.
