Wasn’t expecting anything much on our hike this morning, especially after the extra special day I had yesterday with the Daniels Park Bison… but you never know when the elk are going to show so the camera is always at the ready! As we approached the first ridge I could see to the south that the mountains were going to be putting on a good show, not going to be an ordinary day after all 🙂
As for the rest of the climb… the snow is mostly melted now, just a couple of small patches to contend with on the way to the summit. A beautiful spring morning in the mountains soaked with warm golden sunshine. Perhaps this long winter is finally coming to an end! As we cleared the first ridge I could barely see the majestic Sangre de Cristo poking through above the roiling storm clouds below. Some kind of weather is on the way… hoping we don’t get a dumping!
