Is That Spring in the Air?

Not quite; albeit I was in shorts and long sleeves today. Not bad for February 13th. Our snowiest month, March, is still to come. We can get some cold temps, too. Nonetheless, a lot of melt was taking place. Locally, all but the northerly aspects are snow-free. The Denver Water access road up Waterton Canyon was mostly dry with a few icy and muddy spots.

Today may have been my best ride since being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease last August. I hate the word disease! Don't you? It is what it is. Better yet, I felt good and strong throughout the ride. Take that Parkinson's! Following are a few more pics from the ride. Enjoy!

Looking upstream at impounded water behind one of several diversions.

The diversion dam is downstream in the distance. Can you pick it out?

There is lots of shore ice.

Main channel ice development is ice buildup on large in-stream boulders.

That's it for now. Think spring!

It's Gone!!

Every October the grub stores stock up on a seasonal product — Count Chocula!  We buy a lot of the cereal as soon as it arrives because it sells out fast. In fact, I've been told some craft breweries use it in their seasonal beer, which is another reason it goes so quick.

I've reached the end of my last box. It's a sad, sad day! Until next October, rest in peace Count Chocula...

Mary Carter Greenway and January's End

Hi all,

Our January ended with some snow. However, as the eastern half of country freezes to death, the west half has remained quite nice. Highs have been in the 40s along Colorado's Front Range. Nonetheless, following are pics from January 25th (ski track) and 28th.

The dying ski track was covered in new snow several days later.

Yes, many of our bike paths are plowed after a storm — we're spoiled.

The trees look to be huddled together for warmth.

That's it for now, short and sweet. Thanks for reading.
