Colorado wildflowers cover much of the ground in Butler Gulch near Empire, Colorado. <br />
<br />
To reach this location, take Highway 40 from I-70, go through Empire, and take the Jones Pass exit (just before the switchbacks begin heading over Berthoud Pass.) Follow the road and eventually enter a dirt road. The parking area is a short left off the dirt road. Stop at the gate, then begin the hike. The first mile is easy. The second mile is uphill. The third mile is beautiful!<br />
