Snow

A sign of the change of seasons

Quite a day yesterday in Rocky Mountain National Park… Not long after I took this I was wanting to head back down to the east side of the park where we were camped but they closed Trail Ridge Road literally 30 seconds before I was there.

With the rest of my family down below and the rangers being unsure as to when the road would open, I ended up taking the long way around – a three and a half hour diversion. Ugh!

I reckon on the plus side for my readers is that I do have some cool pics to share this week. 😉

Snow lingering in Colorado high above timberline

Lingering snow cover in the #Colorado Rockies. Taken yesterday (7/26/14) at Brainard Lake in Arapaho National Forest, Mount Audubon (13,229 feet) still has quite a bit of snow on it despite it being mid-summer. The soft, amber lighting of sunrise made for a pretty nice image and looked gorgeous in person.

A very cold lake front

With morning temperatures down into the single digits I almost didn’t venture out. While cold, the wintry scenes were quite pretty. This one taken at Barr Lake.

March in Colorado? Meh!

A very cold and blustery morning today wasn’t fit for man or beast to be outside.  That didn’t stop me and it of course animals have little choice.  One of my bald eagle friends was hanging out in the cold, undoubtedly wondering when spring would be arriving.  She definitely did not look happy.

Winter white trees and shrubs

A very cold and somewhat miserable start to meteorological spring in the Denver area.  With temperatures in the teens and windchill temperatures pushing down to near zero, I almost had to force myself to get out and take this picture.  I am glad I did.  The trees were all covered in white from the freezing drizzle and snow and while it looked somewhat dreary, it was pretty in its own right.
