Photo essay: Spring colors adorn this little corner of downtown Glenwood

Michael Hurst, who lives in downtown Glenwood Springs, has two passions — hunting and tulips.

He has been growing and working on his multiple tulips beds at his home for over 35 years, after being inspired by his father, who also invested time and money in the outdoor recreation.

Hurst’s current plots house around 2,000 tulips, 95 percent of which came from Holland.

He plants them by hand every fall in a mixture of natural materials and waits for the arrival of spring.
