A Snow Day Walk #


The plows were out in force trying to make the roads safe for travelers.

Road Closed

Though they did not even try to clear the dam.

The Dam Road

A rare opportunity for the skier or pedestrian to follow the Dam Road, normally reserved for cars.

The Dam

The dam was too long for a man on foot in knee high snow, so I stopped here before turning around.

Weak Sun

The pale disc of the sun tried to shine through the clouds, but it would be a few hours before it could break through.

Signs of Life

Though deep, the snow couldn’t bury everything in white.


Taller grass shone through.


A brief bit of sun cast shadows in the untouched landscape.

Plant and Shadow

No one and nothing else had seen this scene before. I was the first.


Though the storm was ending, it was not finished.


The sun came out after breakfast, with a reminder that this white wonderland will not last. Not under the warm sun of Denver.
