Spring is in full bloom in Denver

The seasonal changes are yet another big part of what makes a town like Denver worth living in.  Having lived in a mono-climate, where the only seasonal change was a varying of temperature and humidity and, oh yeah, hurricane season, our seasonal changes are what keeps things really interesting with such a varying of pure change from season to season.  I’ve posted the seasonal change to winter, spring snow and full on summer, but the change from winter to spring, to me, is the most satisfying of all seasonal changes.  With the winter to spring change, we  get a new perspective on life.  Where once was brown, dead dreary trees and grass and dirt, we see buds springing from once lifeless limbs, brown grass magically transformed green and beautifully colored flowers pushing through the dry, hardened seemingly dead earth.  

It’s hard not to appreciate spring and all its newness and beauty.  Away go the heavy coats and boots.  The snow shovel will (hopefully) get stored in the garage for many months and the roller blades, bicycles, shorts and sandals are now at the ready for basking in this new season.  We welcome you spring like a very rich uncle we almost forgot we had. 

Enjoy spring in Denver, but keep your eyes open for the only aspect of spring we truly fear… HAIL!

Some pics of our recent visit to Mt. Evans

I just wanted to drop in a few pictures of Sandra and my most recent visit to the top of Mt. Evans  2 days before closing for the season.  If you’ve never been to the top, please go and check it out after it  re-opens on May 28, 2010.

It was an unbelievable drive in the Mini and better yet, for the hard core road cyclists , it is an amazing training ride.  When I bike it, I  usually start in Bergen Park and do Squaw Pass and then head up Mt. Evans.  Many choose to start in Idaho Springs and head up from the other side.  Either way, it’s worth the pain, ride.

Enjoy the “visit”.
