    Default looking for advice on starting a couple of hives...

    in the mountains of Central Colorado. Elevation of 7200 ft. Wondering about a lot of things i.e. what might the principal nectar sources be and what flavors the honey would carry. Lots of sagebrush, juniper, pinion pine, sarvousberry (sp), chokeberry, pines and spruce, spring wildflowers and dandelions etc..
    Thanks for any feedback.
