Ten-Years Ago (20-May-2007) — Colorado

Springtime Nature in Colorado.

I had a great time while working part-time in Boulder, Colorado. Nearly every weekend I visited Rocky Mountain National Park ultimately being able experience all four seasons in the park. On this day there were lots of spring wildflowers, at least in the lower elevations. Someone told me the yellow thing that looked like flowers on a conifer tree was some type of fungus. Later during the afternoon, rain clouds came in and captured a stormy panorama.
