Out and about …

Meadow Creek, near Frisco, Colorado, raging with spring runoff.

FRISCO — Spring in the high country is not a leisurely affair by any stretch of the imagination. One day, it’s dumping snow, the next, it’s 70 degrees and you can almost watch the grass grow an inch in just a few hours. Everything seems to be in hurry to take advantage of the warmer weather. Streams rush down from the high alpine crags, and wildflowers seem to be racing each other to bloom — and in some cases, they are racing to win the services of the earliest pollinating insects. Everything is condensed into a few frenzied weeks of growth and change before the stasis of summer arrives.
