Happy Groundhog Day! Punxsutawney Phil has nothing on this handsome dude from the Colorado high country. Yeah, Dave may not get all the press about shadows and spring versus winter but he brings that western attitude and lives in far less hospitable environs above timberline than his flatland cousin.
I met Dave this past summer on Mount Evans and he was a rather cheeky fellow, guarding his territory and giving me some pretty fun poses and looks like this one. I look forward to visiting with him and his family again here in a few months.
His cousin Phil saw his shadow this morning so we supposedly have six more weeks of winter. It will take longer than that to clear the snow from Dave’s place though. 😉
