Weather

Colorado has it. We’re getting hit with another big snowstorm here in the front range. Unfortunately too busy today to bust out the skis or snowshoes but I thought I’d post a few pics of our snowshoe trip last weekend up Young’s Gulch:

Crisp, clear day in Fort Collins so we drive up the Poudre river canyon. On the drive out there, we were caught in a blizzard with high winds. By the time we got to the trailhead, it was again a crisp, clear day, sun shining bright, not a cloud in the sky…

Then a few miles later:

Colorado rule #1 – never trust the weather report and always expect the weather to fluctuate rapidly no matter how tame it may look out your living room window!

  1. So true about Colorados’ weather! The Poudre Canyon can get pretty windy anytime of year. I’ve enjoyed a hike up Youngs Gulch before but not on snowshoes. It looks like a fun trip.

    Happy Holidays!
