Snow in the high country

  1. PT….Changing of the seasons….similar to changing of the guards….renewal in so many ways. I’m hoping Portland gets a real dump this winter!!! Your daughter-in-law and I should figure out who gets to “lead” as we dance…….

    1. I don’t doubt that. I’ll bet it was beautiful and sunny. I was going up today but it looked too cool and dreary this morning. I’m holding out now for Wednesday.

    1. It all melted in a couple of hours. I’ll bet that road isn’t closed yet. If you think you might be coming up, call Park Headquarters for into: Visitor Information 970-586-1206 (Daily 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mountain Time, recorded information after hours)

      And yes, I try to get up there either before Memorial Day or after Labor Day to avoid the tourists.

      1. My brother and family is headed that way shortly – they have been worried about the wild fires but ready to hike – and lounge around on a deck relaxing.
        Unfortunately I have to head east to German sit before long. Not the preferred direction.
        Longmont is very pretty – always thought that might be a nice place to land.

      2. The fires are all gone. Only the burn scars remain, significant only west of Colorado Springs and WNW of Fort Collins.

        I seriously considered settling in Longmont. My sister lived there for years and loved it. And it has such great access to Estes. Ultimately I opted to live near my son in Thornton, but I continue to fret that I’m not closer to Estes.

... and that's my two cents
