Sometimes, it still amazes me how quickly things happen here. Springtime in the Rockies is not necessarily something to sing about. In the past two weeks, we’ve had several inches of snow, but you’d hardly know it. Tuesday, the sky dropped about six inches of the stuff on us. Yesterday, the temps warmed up and it was almost gone from the valley. Of course, up here on the mountain we still have a bunch.
I’ve already mentioned that one of the things I was looking forward to, with this new assignment, was the opportunity to do some hiking, photography, and painting. The thing is, even when the weather’s nice, the ground is sloppy and mucky. It isn’t the kind of situation to be hauling my easel around in. Selfishly, I hope for dry weather. We desperately need the water, though, so I wont complain (much).
Here are a couple of frames I did after work, yesterday.
