Sunny Morning Before Another Snowstorm
Don't be deceived by this morning's sunny photo of Mt. Princeton taken on Chaffee County Road 301. Why? Because as I am typing this at 3:30 p.m., the entire sky is filled with a grayish silver shade and strong winds are coming down from the mountains. Snow is in the forecast for this evening and tomorrow!
This morning I made a short hike along the trail that leads to Lost Lake near Cottonwood Pass. I was not wearing snowshoes, which slowed me down in the two to six inches of snow up there, and I only made it to the unnamed pond not far from the road. Still, it was nice to capture some snow scenes and you can see all of my photos here: Snow In The Mountains.
