Any Coloradoan will tell you to be prepared for any weather. It is likely to experience all four seasons in one day in the centennial state and it’s aways best to dress in layers. Lately, we’ve had nothing but bluebird days (as they say) and warm temperatures for this late in October, especially on the western slope. However, just a few weeks ago the weather was quite moody if you will, more clouds than blue sky, cooler temperatures and deeper tones. Snow has fallen on the peaks and within the valley but much of it has melted throughout the warm, sunshine drenched days. What lies in the days ahead as far as weather goes I’m not sure, only the clouds of tomorrow will tell, should there be any at all. The aspen trees now stand bare but still tall and the landscape resembles more of a high desert fall. The misty mountain days of mid-fall were some of the better ones, adding a different ambiance than that of the first or last light of day.
Just over this pass (which turns to dirt shortly after this) there is an active coal mine that will be expanding its production. 146 oil wells have also been approved on this beautiful land. One hundred and forty-six! I can’t fully comprehend what that might look like or the incredible impact it all will have.
