First evening walk in spring weather


Finally, now late in April, we had a warm spring day and a beautiful evening with no wind. The grass is turning a little green and further down in elevation trees are leafing out, but not here yet.  It was wonderful just to be able to go for a walk around our neighborhood and enjoy the outdoors for a change.


This is Castle Cove ("my" mountain) from a distance.  If you click on the picture and look at the green steel roof to the left of the white playhouse, you will see part of my house.


We live at an elevation of 6800' or 2072m.

Wow Loran---you are really WAY UP there.. We are at 2000 feet here---and our trees and spring is WAY behind the valley below... I was so amazed to see all of the green leaves on the trees when we went to Texas last week. I couldn't get over it...

Love your mountain... Too bad it's not named after YOU.
Hugs,
Betsy

You have some beautiful views and skies. Good to get out, huh? At 6800 feet I'm not surprised you have cold and a little snow. Great captures.

Glad to see your snow has mostly melted!Soon your stream will be running high. Those storm clouds look as though they're bringing moisture - I hope rain, not snow!
