Better late than never …

FRISCO — A short hike along the Ptarmigan Trail to start the Memorial Day weekend yielded some of the first real spring-like images of the year, including some always spectacular pasque flowers, as well as aspen leaves finally starting to show, as late as I can ever remember. All this just one year after the earliest and warmest spring on record, which may be another sign of weather extremes driven by global climate change, or, maybe, just nature;s inherent capricious whimsy.

  1. True, it has taken a while for the aspens and all trees to bud/bloom this year.. I keep betting my kids the leaves will show here (9280 ft) before school gets out. I may lose.
