Winter Wonderland

Winter in Colorado is a most spectacular event! First, the weather is rather…fickle…so it’s hard to know what’s going to happen. It always keeps us guessing!

This past week we had a wonderful overnight snowfall, the kind where you go to bed with no snow on the ground and wake up to a winter wonderland.

This particular morning it looked like the snow crystals underwent a science experiment and decided to grow outwards from whatever they landed on. The morning was still and quiet, and the sun had yet to rise and disturb the dainty flakes everywhere.

To me, it looks like a giant stick of rock candy…to my son it looked like ‘fuzzy caterpillars everywhere!’ and my daughters just wanted to play in it, not talk about it!

This same morning we also found fox tracks in the snow outside our house (it looks like he spent some time under our porch!) and an entire host of robins perched in our backyard trees.

Magical, indeed!
