Roses are red, violets are blue, clicking these pics made me cold, how about you?
Little bit of snow fell on the mountain tops yesterday. It didn't get to freezing temperatures at the 7500 feet that I'm at, but it was still pretty chilly to me considering Denver is still getting into the 80s every now and then.
It finally stopped raining, warmed up a bit, and most of the clouds went away, which gave me a chance to take pictures of something besides the bronco.
I was pretty unhappy about all the rain and wasn't too thrilled about the nighttime temperatures just above freezing. But if I had looked on the bright side of things, I would've realized that all of those thick clouds and cold temperatures were going to bring some snow to the mountain tops and some beautiful sunsets. And that fact never occurred to me until I started taking snapshots of the snowy mountain tops and spectacular sunset.
I drove to a State wildlife area at Monte Vista early this morning and managed to get some pictures of Sandhill Cranes flying by, but they were pretty far away, so many of my snapshots were just silhouettes of Cranes against the sky.
As I drove around, I didn't find any place where the cranes were feeding on the ground. There's a lot of places around here for them to feed, and most of them are not anywhere near a road, so the chances of finding them walking around is rather remote, especially since I'm not very familiar with this area. But I've still got time, so maybe a good Sandhill Crane picture will accidentally fall into my lap even though a lot of my time is spent relaxing instead of chasing the cunning and deadly Sandhill Crane.
It looks like the snow just barely made it down below timberline, so it had no effect on me because I was bundled up nice and toasty.
One of my neighbors had a nice view. Unfortunately my view included his trailer.
I have to admit the bronco is not the warmest camper I've ever been in, but it may be the coldest. Cold breezes blow through this camper like the door was open. And with the factory furnace, and the terrible factory thermostat, it's either too cold or too hot seemingly all at the same time. It never feels just right, and if it does it doesn't last long enough for me to enjoy it. I think a digital thermostat may be in order.
