Stardate 2016.016

Happy New Year!!

Remember when 2016 seemed so faaarrrrrr awwaaayyyy? Me too, and it's here now! Ouch!

We've had a bit of a cold spell, but temps broke free today, climbing well into the 40s. The temperature was a good enough excuse to procrastinate and take the Pearl for a ride up Waterton Canyon. The ride began dry, with a touch of Fahrenheit-cold lingering in the shadows.

Northerly aspects still have a blanket of snow for show.

I turned around at the trailhead for the Colorado Trail.

Turkshead Peak rises from 5,780 feet to about 7,700 feet in elevation.

The shadows stealthily morphed into a heavy, dark and cold ambience.

The South Platte River isn't completely iced over.

You've been mooned!

Waterton Canyon

That's it for now. It's been a rather slow start this new year. Stay tuned...



  1. Thanks for the glimpses of Waterton! I look forward to going back there some day. It's snowy and cold here now - proper winter weather at last after a murky damp December.

    Happy New Year to you both!

  2. Such a magical place! Can never get enough!
