Back in Colorado

April 23 snow welcomes us back
Here we are back outside Denver at Barr Lake State Park.  It is fun to see things in the spring as new life is budding versus being dried out and winding down last fall.  We were promptly welcomed with 3 inches of snow and night time lows around 20. Coming back up here in April may be nixed in future years. We haven't been here long enough to get a lot of pictures but I plan on walking all the way around the lake on Sunday.  There are several owl and hawk nests reported with babies so I hope to get some good pictures.  They think the baby eagles may not have survived the extreme cold that hit a couple weeks ago.  I hope the other babies survived last nights cold and snow.  I'll get pictures posted as I get ones that are worthy.
Barr Lake now has water.
Rockies in the distance.
This pheasant hangs out around us
all the time.
