Too cold for gardening? Try snowshoeing

By Staff

Since I am a "newbie" to the area, I am amazed how one can have 50 degree temps in the valley and drive 30 minutes to 20 degrees and pristine & sparkly snow on the Mesa.   I am the slightly over-zealous cheerleader among my group of friends nagging them to "Get Out There" and enjoying the splendor. Where I came from (Buffalo, New York) you're lucky to have three days of sun in a month during winter. So here's what I did to enjoy my holidays this year:

I can't think of a better way to spend Christmas Day than on Grand Mesa. It had just snowed the night before; the sun was shining, temps around 25 which are perfect for snowshoeing. Didn't have to wear a jacket or gloves either.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was even more wonderful because I was with Ken - you all know it's great to be with the one you love while enjoying our Colorado winters !

New Year's Eve is approaching fast and once again we are trekking to the Mesa. This time the weather promises to be in the "normal range" of temperatures... 20 degrees in the Valley and 5-10 degrees in the mountains. I think we'll be in front of a nice warm fire mulling over whether we should snowshoe or just watch the crazy people from the cabin windows....

 

 

hmmmm... me thinks this is a No-Brainer.

 

 


 

 

Staff didn't write this - Sue Buskist, our very own LLFD (Lovely Lady of the Front Desk) did. Thanks, Sue!
