Springtime in the Rockies

It's spitting snow this morning. The snow flakes are globbed together and coming down erratically at sharp angles. Old Man Winter is named Billy Bob, and he's not going off stage easily. Ten miles from Hog Island is Buff (Buffalo) Pass last week the snow depth measuring site up there set an all time state record. That's any month anywhere ever since records were kept. Heck yeah! This is quality ammunition to tell the Grandkids on their way to the school bus. The Yampa hit a little 5 day window in there when the temps stayed low, and it snowed, and the run-off slowed down to where fishing looked up. Here's a cool picture of Carlos floating and holding a fat Rainbow on May 1 with the ski hill in the background. Springtime in the Rockies!
