Summer scenes

FRISCO —It hasn’t snowed in the past five days, so it’s probably safe to say that the short and sweet summer season has arrived in the Colorado High Country. The kayakers playing in Steamboat Springs last weekend during the Yampa Riverfest would certainly agree, and rainbows over the wetlands are another sure sign of the season.

A little bit of everything …

FRISCO — Finding bliss the Colorado mountains is easy. All you have to do is open your eyes and your heart and take few deep breaths to wash away the clatter and clutter of daily life. Stop for a moment along your daily commute and find a spot where you can feel the power of the peaks, or get up early and watch your backyard birds go about their daily business to feel the rhythm of life in the high country. If so moved, grab a camera and snap a couple of shots of your own and share them with your friends around the world!

Finally!


FRISCO —After weeks of rain — literally — skies cleared Friday evening, offering the first colorful sunset in quite a while. I’m not complaining about the moisture. After a dry winter, the wet may was welcome, but it was great to see the sky emerge, with the promise of some warmer and drier weather ahead. The iPhone pano mode worked well to capture some of the subtleties and contrasts in the evening sky.

Sky drama

FRISCO —I’ve always been fascinated by clouds in their many shapes, and especially by the way they interact with the Earth and sea. From dripping coastal fogs to towering thunderstorms and ice-filled stratus clouds, it’s always seemed to me that they represent the connection between the sky and the more solid, touchable parts of our biosphere, cycling energy, in the form of heat and water, between the realms.

All kinds of beautiful …

FRISCO —Rain, snow, sun … repeat! That’s about the long and short of it this month, as Mother Nature makes up for being stingy in March. And while some may be longing for summer weather, the moisture will help dampen wildfire concerns for at least a while and yield an amazing crop of wildflowers during the next few weeks.

Colorado cool!

FRISCO —After a dry and warm start to the spring, we’re enjoy a resurgence of moisture going into May. It may be a bit frustrating for anyone anxious to break out the flip-flops and cut-offs, but the cool, rainy days and nights are beneficial in so many ways, from boosting water supplies to nurturing forests and fields in the Colorado high country. The moisture we get now will help sustain the coming crop of wildflowers and at least delay the wildfire season, so get out there and explore this in-between season, with an eye on the coming summer!
