During wildflower season in Crested Butte, Colorado, I launched my drone to capture a panoramic masterpiece. Below, a lush green valley stretched out, cradling a sinuous stream as it wound its way toward the distant horizon. To the right, perched atop the hillside, lay the village of Mount Crested Butte, a quaint gateway to the towering presence of Crested Butte mountain itself. This aerial perspective painted a vibrant scene of nature's bounty and human habitation coexisting in perfect harmony, a testament to the beauty that graces this remarkable corner of the world.
