We all know that summers in Breckenridge are perfect for biking and hiking. What makes it extra special, is biking and hiking through fields of wildflowers. Breckenridge's backcountry is filled with hot pink Indian Paintbrushes, purple and white Columbines, Iris and more. If you haven't explored Breck lately, maybe these photos will inspire you.
