After worry … happy

McKenna Peak, Temple Butte and Brumley Point seen from west-of-favorite hill.

We’ve been waiting for winter all, well, winter.

Snow on McKenna Peak.

Sometimes, wishes DO come true.

Temple Butte

The entire region got snow for pretty much two solid days.

Snow-covered juniper in Spring Creek Basin.

Middle and lower Disappointment Valley got about 14 to 18 inches of snow.

If you live in Boston, you’re laughing. If you live in Southwest Colorado, you’re on your knees thanking all the gods and goddesses of nature. I’m on my knees, thankful, grateful. Relieved.

This is our summer grass, our summer ponds and creeks and rivers. This, my friends, is life in a dry land.


Welcome, winter. Thanks for the snow. 🙂

Holy snow – we’re all up to our knees walking through this snow! It’s crazy, but I’ll take every ounce of it. While it probably won’t break our drought, it’s a very welcome relief!

Lovely. May the sun melt it slowly, and then clouds drop another nice load…
(P.S. I’ve begun reading this wonderful blog from the start. What a treat!)

I don’t recall that much snow in my years of going to Spring Creek. I look forward to the flowers in the spring. Grasses too of course.
