On August 15th we woke up to cold, rain at the YMCA. It rained most of that day and most of the 16th. These pictures of the fresh snow on the mountains were taken on the 16th. We drove up as far was they would let us go (Many Curves overlook) on Trail Ridge. The rest of Trail Ridge is closed for now because of the snow, etc. The locals say that they have never seen it snow this early before. It seems so strange to need coats here, but believe me they feel good. This morning it is 40 degrees, but the sun is shining. So I am sure that it will warm up quickly.
There are lots of baby deer and elk down from the mountains now. So maybe they are going to have an early fall.
We will be traveling back to Texas on Thursday and Friday after Labor Day. Any snow there??
