An auspicious start after breakfast at the Donut Mill in Woodland Park!
Early morning light spilling through the trees. The crisp air and the sound of snow crunch ing under our feet. Ahhhhhh . . . spring time in the Rockies!
Rick pauses as we walk up the valley with light snow falling.

We were starting to wonder if we'd need our snowshoes as the jaunt up the valley saw just a dusting of hard crust snow. We found out in a big way. As soon as we entered the trees we encountered thigh-high snow drifts.
Catching a breather.
The sun was doing an amazing dance with the clouds all day.
Close to the top with the summit in the background.
