First Snow Of The Season

It is a beautiful first snow.  The hue colors of Fall have been replaced with pure white airy flakes, making the landscape innocent and clean again.  Smell of the first snow heightens my senses.  Memories abound of the holidays to come...caring, sharing,  joyous gatherings.

I know you will not last long, Welcome first snow,  lay low, stay awhile.

Fine Fall day for a walk


Hiking to Hecula Castle
2 mile ride down the Austin Trail on ATV's, plus a  1 1/2 mile walk on an old wagon trail, we are able to view the magnificent Hecula Castle rock formation.  Cool sunny weather and great friends was the perfect combination for today's hike.

Hecula Castle Rock Formation
Hecula Castle is long time landmark, guards the western entrance to Box Canyon and Railroad Gulch.  This gorge once was the route for locomotives who hauled iron ore from the Calumet Mine high in the Ute Trail country east to the Arkansas River.
Stunning Rock Formation

Fall Vacation Cut Short
 With the prediction of more snow on the way we decided to leave the mountain earlier than planned.  Our short trip has created many memories.  Chili feed with great friends, morning coffee clutches, mountain hiking, cozy wood stove fires, beautiful Fall landscapes and "The First Snow of the Season" , we are blessed...
