“You ask me why I dwell in the green mountain;
I smile and make no reply for my heart is free of care.
As the peach-blossom flows down stream and is gone into the unknown,
I have a world apart that is not among men.”
– Li Bai, legendary Chinese poet
San Luis Valley (SLV), South-Central Colorado, 8,200 ft.
It was – 22 Celcius last night.
Looks like it will warm up again, with a “heat wave” next week:
The winter storm at the beginning of the week dumped about a meter of snow higher up, but only 12 cm (or so) where I live. I had hoped for three times as much, but it’s something. So, as is apparently “the usual” here, the storm was hyped again.
The mountains look extra gorgeous, though. Couple more photos taken this week:

Looking towards the Sangre de Cristos from the valley on my way to Moffat:
Snow-covered sand dunes…
Flashback to a very recent past when I still lived almost exclusively out of my car, and camped in a múch smaller tent, less than a year ago: (Feb. 28, 2015) Winter Camping in the Sand Dunes (Southern Colorado PHOTOS).
