A Snowy Visit to Rocky Mountian National Park

If you read yesterday’s post, then you know I went to Colorado. We spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Yarn Fest trade show in Loveland, but on Sunday, after it ended, we drove up to the mountains.

I’ve been saying for a while now that I wanted to see snow. It’s been ages since I have experienced it.  It was snowing when we arrived in Denver, but it was a wet snow and driving in it made it hard to enjoy. What I wanted was deep fluffy white snow. My wish came true!

On the way up we saw some wild Big Horn Sheep on the side of the road. No wool to spin, but still, they are Sheep.

It was beautiful. Just beautiful.

Of course the rental car was ill equipped to drive in the snow, so when the roads began to cover, we were forced to turn around. But it was a wonderful trip and one I will not soon forget.
