Colorado!

April 15


After a wintry day yesterday, the sun is out again, but the North-Western wind makes for a cool day. Park owner Nancy is working with a major beautification project at the park entrance. The old ugly mesh fence is gone, and today a big truck arrived bringing a load of huge rocks. Nancy calls it: " My 1000-year fence" and it really shows off.




From Prospect Park I can see far to the snow-capped gleaming tops of the Rockies.




Our little lake is deep blue today and the creek runs, well-fed by the melting snow in the mountains, through the spring-fresh valley.








The clear weather makes me think of our visit to the Rocky Mountain National Park in the fall of 2008.
Here are our pictures of the Rocky Mountain National Park north of Denver.
