Meanwhile, we were exploring up in the high mountains near South Park of Colorado. We encountered the usual stormy weather and lots of snow. This snow bank was at around 12,000' elevation.
Huge snow banks blocked some of my favorite trails but alpine flowers were sprouting at their edges.
As the storm started to clear out, a faint rainbow appeared.
As sunset approached, the storms cleared out leaving behind a lush meadow and picturesque clouds.
And then the sun set on our first day in my favorite campsite.
