Springtime in the Rockies
May 7, 2016 7:26am CST
As I was walking yesterday I was enjoying the light green leaves against the dark green of the evergreens. And enjoying both of them against the backdrop of the snow capped mountain and the blue clear sky. I don't think my picture has done the view justice. We have spent most of our three weeks skiing up on a mountain where there is still lots of snow. But that snow has deteriorated a lot and we are done with skiing. I could spend our final week enjoying hiking or cycling on the many wonderful trails here. But to my husband, mountains are for skiing and we might as well go home if we are not skiing! It will be nice to get busy getting the garden ready to plant.

The ski hill we were at (Sunshine village) will close on May 23. There is generally enough snow to ski well after that but so few people go that it is not worth staying open. This had been such a warm spring that the skiing is not as good as we are used to so my husband doesn't want to ski anymore. I could happily keep skiing or find other wonderful things to do here. But home looks good after 3 weeks away too.

How wonderful that you are able to enjoy the Rockies. I have traveled through there several times and always enjoy the scenery. It has been a lot of years since I have been there, because last time I went to Vancouver I flew.
