It has been quite a winter and spring here in Colorado.
We received a healthy dose of snow at lower elevations while the mountains received more than they have seen in years. In fact, the snow continues to fall up there, ensuring a beautiful view from the east. At lower elevations, the moisture has the foliage looking beautiful and lush.
This past Sunday I took in this scene of the plains in their resplendent spring colors (and a few deer) while in the background, the mountains are covered in a blanket of white.
