On the road again, this time to Frisco, Colorado. This 9,000+ ft alpine village is nestled in a valley between Vail and Breckenridge. We’re renting a friend’s condo with members of our family. Spring is still in control here. Coolish days — daytime temps in the low 50’s to low 60’s. Colorado has been receiving more than its share of rain for the past month or so. The Dillon Reservoir that is adjacent to the town was getting too high so it was drained this past week leaving sailboats and docks temporarily high and dry. The Dillonn is a water source for Denver which is water-logged itself due to a very wet April, May and early June. Maybe some water could be diverted westward to California?
The cooler temps make hiking easier. The afternoon rain showers (actually heavy mist) seem strangely inappropriate since the higher elevations still shoulder significant snow.
Today’s been spectacular: on an eight mile hike the sky held few clouds:
