The day dawned beautifully, with blue skies and only a pocket or two of snow here and there, while the north-facing hills across from us are snow-covered. We figured out that our slopes get more sun and are therefore warmer, hence the snow melts. Planning on a hike up the canyon this morning. David wishes the kids would show up. I do, too, but I suspect they won’t.
Lupines are about ready to bloom, and the balsam root aren’t far behind. The next few weeks should be spectacular! When we are hiking everything smells so green and fresh. It reminds me of riding in the hills when I was young.
