Small Wonders and Natural Moments Life and Nature in the Colorado Front Range
Monday, February 19, 2007
Last week, Nature repeatedly provided opportunities for awe, as the last post suggests. Dustings of snow, rather than the recent major dumps, allowed appreciation with less frustration. Time for a trip through Red Rocks, where the foothills were once again looking very fancy!
I think this one is my favorite from Thursday, although it's very hard to choose.
This is Ship Rock, near the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. For a look at it from another angle, see Ship Rock Then & Now, on the Mountain Parks history website.
Today, warmer weather prevails and we are fast going back to brown! Although thawing and chill have been alternating, the ground finally has appeared for the first time since the Winter Solstice storm. It means the disappearance of these gorgeous views, but has several nice side effects!
