The Wild Geranium is one of my favorite wildflowers in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. It is abundant and grows everywhere near the trails.

It is so delicate…I think the colors are just stunning! Have you ever seen one?

Spring is getting closer…

This fiery sunrise was just gorgeous in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park the other night!

As someone on our Facebook page said, “I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky…” one of the lyrics in Colorado’s John Denver song, “Rocky Mountain High.”

This Dreamy Duskywing butterfly was so pretty in Rocky Mountain National Park last summer.

It’s not a colorful butterfly, but so pretty in its own coloring.

Have you ever seen one?

We usually get up very early in the morning…way before sunrise. Phil will work on the computer and I will read in bed until it looks like the day is beginning. I got up about 6:30 and was making some hot chocolate when I looked out the window. The sun was just coming up and you could tell it was going to be a beautiful sunrise. Within minutes the sky was painted an array of incredible colors! I stood on our deck and snapped away, hoping for that perfect photograph. It was all over within a few minutes. I think I got a pretty good one, what do you think? Another day in paradise…nothing beats a┬ámagnificent sunrise in the mountains!

We were the first ones out on the trail to Cub Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park after the new snow a few days ago.

It was such a treat. Quiet and solitude. We didn’t see anyone else until we were almost down again.

What a difference a day makes in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Saturday was warm and sunny and Sunday the snows started into Monday.

By Monday afternoon we had about 8-10 inches and it was still snowing. I even had to put my winter jacket on…first time in a long while!

Happy Winter!

I was so surprised to see this sign about the coyotes by Lake Estes and the golf course the other day. We frequently will see a coyote or two roaming in the area.

There must be quite a few coyotes hanging out there this winter to put that sign up!
