Photos of Snow Cover Northern Sangre de Cristo Mountains: May 11, 2015

May 11, 2015, Gorgeous spring weather

Rain helped melt the snow below 9000 ft quickly:

Quite the variety this spring.  From a fierce several weeks of heavy winds and sand/dust storms to highly radioactive rain, to breaking mid-spring snow records…  (Was that only yesterday???  Time gets weird up here…)  If the weather stays thís nice, my muddy mess will be molten/evaporated and dry again within days.  ;-)

Next “season” usually starts some time in June: “mosquito season“.  All this moisture is promising quite the buffet for the bats and birds…

  • The below photos taken in the afternoon of May 11, 2015, from near Moffat and near Hooper, Colorado:
