It’s the summer that won’t start! Now, only in Colorado!
Seriously: as I write this, it is snowing on Berthoud Pass. Aspen Mountain opened to skiers … on Memorial Day. We cancelled our Mother’s Day plans to drive to Colorado Springs because it was too dangerous driving through a winter storm over Monument Hill. Meanwhile, California bakes and dries out. Having endured droughts before, I’ll grudgingly take dump-trucks of moisture any day.
I bring this up because last weekend, we finally — finally — left Denver and went somewhere with our daughters. Our first trip with four-month-old Lamorra. We drove up I-70 to Steamboat Springs for a night, then reconnected with my extended family at a fishing and hunting ranch outside Yampa. What has the moisture brought?
