Tuesday’s first shot is from Monday evening, looking up the valley from Cement Creek Road. Thunder showers started popping up across the Gunnison Country in the early afternoon, pumping out sporadic thunder and light rain in the Crested Butte area. At dusk, steady rains moved in and continued late into the evening.
Our late summer monsoons have been providing enough moisture to get some late-season color in our mountain meadows. While it might take a little more hunting than usual, finding a patch of pretty flowers like these lupine on the Treasury ski run makes it all the more rewarding. We haven’t seen much, if any, frost yet this season, so the flowers are making the most of the late moisture and doing what they can to pump out the color and complete their reproductive cycle.
Today’s forecast is for a small chance of thunderstorms this afternoon with a high of around 77 degrees. Summer days don’t last forever–especially in the high country–so enjoy ‘em while you got ‘em!
