Wildflower and photography hike through Pawnee National Grassland to Pawnee Buttes in northeastern Colorado not far from the Nebraska border. We will hike at a casual pace to the buttes allowing time to enjoy and photograph the spring flowers and landscape. While the main trail is open year-round, there are rapture closures until June 30, which includes the buttes themselves as well as a side trail. Our hike will be at a casual pace to allow wildflower identification and photography. All types of cameras are encouraged including phone cameras.
