A pretty sunset yesterday evening told us that another storm was moving our way.
I pushed that out of my mind and enjoyed it despite the freezing wind blowing off the mountains.
This morning dawned cloudy and the air felt full of snow.
However, while Shyla and I were out on the trails, the clouds opened up a few times and let the sun shine on us. One of the things that I worked on with Shyla from Day One was sitting at a distance (a useful skill when a dog is off-leash). In this photo, I saw the sunshine, and I asked her to sit.
This was another flash of sunshine, about a half hour later. I love sunshine!
Later, I rode my bike solo on snow-covered trails that rarely attract hunters. Some of the trails were like gold and red carpets of aspen leaves.
Then, it started to snow, and each flake melted when it hit an aspen leaf. Now the trails were glittering carpets of aspen leaves.
My motto for the day was "seize the sunshine". I'm glad I did because now it's snowing hard, again. The Duo will enjoy their evening hike because they adore snow!
I live at 8200' in the Front Range of Colorado. I love exploring nature
in the mountains while riding my mountain bike and romping with my
Labradors. Photography is another passion, including both "normal" photography and trail camera photography of wildlife.
