Trip: Big Horn Mountains, WY

Sat, July 11 – Wed, July 15 2015

 

Trip Leader: Mike Kintgen, Curator of Alpine Collections

 

July is peak season for flowers throughout the Rockies, but never more so than in the State of Wyoming and the Big Horn Mountains area. The striking landscape and unique history, combined with the sensational plants and flowers, will make for a memorable summer vacation with top staff from Denver Botanic Gardens.

 

Departing from Denver, the first day will be spent traveling to Cody, Wyoming, which will be the base of operations for the trip. In Cody we will stay at the Thomas the Apostle Retreat Center. It’s a beautifully situated complex with spectacular views of the Cody valley, lovely gardens that feature many unusual native shrubs and perennials, and is surrounded by acres of pristine sagebrush steppe. Private rooms have two beds and shared bathroom.

 

In the following days, the group will drive to the summit of the Bighorn Mountains and explore this area that is almost mythical for its wildflower displays. We’ll also visit Beartooth Pass, which is one of America’s most spectacular highways featuring spectacular montane, subalpine, and alpine flower displays that should be at peak bloom. This area also has a fen (specialized bog), where we will see rare boreal and artic plants at the southern edge of their range. Other highlights include a visit to the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody and the Meeteetse Chocolatier in Meeteetse, WY.

Bonfils-Stanton Lecture Series 2015

Trip: Steamboat Springs, CO

 

Fri, July 31 – Mon, Aug 3 2015

 

Trip Leader: Mike Kintgen, Curator of Alpine Collections

 

Summer is the perfect time to take a long weekend trip to Steamboat Springs, one of the most scenic places in Colorado. Join top members of our Horticulture staff to experience the area as more than a regular summer tourist.

 

We’ll stay in town, with accommodations close to the famed and unusual hot springs. Take a tour of the various hot springs and treat yourself to some relaxation time. The trip will also include visits to the Yampa River, one of Colorado’s most scenic and wild rivers. Explore the lovely Yampa River Botanic Park and meet with a local herbalist to learn about some of the edible and medicinal native plants found in Northwest Colorado. Our visit should coincide with the flowering of the Yampa root, a local plant prized for its edible roots which gave its name not only to the river but the local Ute tribe. We’ll also see the headwaters of the Yampa in the Flattops of southeastern Steamboat, as well as the Elk River, an important tributary of the Yampa. As the inspiration for John Fielder’s latest publication of Colorado photography, the Yampa River is truly a great Colorado treasure with much to offer the nature-loving visitor.
