While my mom was visiting last weekend, she got to experience a variety of different seasons. On Saturday, we had beautiful 80 degree weather – perfect for hiking Red Rocks. On Sunday, we schlepped around Boulder (shopping), determined to not be stuck in the house all day. By Monday, the rain turned to snow – in MAY – spring feels somewhat like winter when you are (once again) pulling out snow boots and heavy jackets. I had put those items away thinking they’d serve no purpose the next few months…. BUT, this is Colorado So, in the snow, we drove up to the mountains – they are prettiest when covered in snow anyway. Breckenridge is where we landed. It’s mud season now, so the city was as quiet as can be. Regardless, we had a good meal and shopped the few stores that were still open.
It was kind of fun to see what Colorado looks like in the spring AND what it might look like in the winter – all in one weekend. I guess it’s part of the beauty of living here.
