Snow in the High Country

The only aspen that has changed around the cabin! I love it when they turn orange instead of yellow.

We did indeed get snow yesterday afternoon into early evening. It was a wet snow that came down without any wind so it stuck to everything in sight. It was nice to be inside the cabin with a fire in the wood stove keeping us cozy while looking out on the snow falling outside.

It snowed for quite some time before the temperature dropped to freezing and then it began to stick. The poor aspens were not prepared as you can see their leaves in the photo are still green.

It had started out in the morning as a drizzly rain. It stopped for a while and I was convinced it was not going to do much else. In the lull we took the girls around the bottom of our property for a much needed walk.

The aspens here had changed a great deal from just a few days before.

The snow ended up just coating the ground. During the night the wind kicked up and this morning there was not much left.

Here is Bull Mountain this morning with its dusting of white.

That looks like quite a bit of snow up on the mountain! Maybe now that the snow has fallen the aspens will be “shocked” into turning more yellow. I agree those orange leaves are especially nice.

I love the orange too.  Really like that fifth picture with the one aspen tree that’s turned in between the trunks of the other aspens.  Wishing you no more snow and sunny days for the rest of your stay.

Whoa!  You freaked me out at first to think it snowed like this in Jersey already!!!!  So glad this snow, although gorgeous… Isn’t that close to me smile. I’m just not ready yet.  But wow, some serious beauty here that you’ve captured.

I’m really enjoying the pictures! Great photography. If you guys still want to try to get out today (Saturday), we are trying to get out with our guests from St. Louis. We could do a 3 car travel group for safety. Also, have a few other folks coming up to Sand Creek today, we think, so there is help available. Let us know!
