Colorado Springs, CO, SNOW!

We are spending a week in the Colorado Springs area, Falcon, to be exact, in order to visit friends.  Gordon and Evelyn warned us that April was a very unstable, likely to snow, month.  We thought we would take the chance as it was the last few days of April and the first few of May.......

.....We will never plan a trip to see them again before mid May!;)

Whhaattt is all this white stuff??


Looking through our window down on the chairs I figured we would be using while here....not likely!

I do not own snow boots!  

We are on the right,  Crazy!

We have made it to Trinity Brewing Company:)

A drive near Garden of the Gods 

Went to a wine tasting in Manitou
one evening, no sign of Pikes

Back at Paradise, we did have
antelope walk by one morning!

Evelyn and I went for a walk today in their community. I had 4 layers on
and was fairly comfortable;)   Cold wind!


  1. Stay Warm it won't last long! We were there at the Cheyenne Mtn State park last May and got 3 inches of hail in 10 minutes. Crazy Colorado Weather.

    1. Crazy indeed! We have decided for the future we will not consider staying in the area before mid May:)

  2. Beautiful---I love all that SNOW

    1. And this, Paul, I'm thinking is a good thing:)
