Postcards From the Weekend: Seasons Collide

The higher we climb, the more the seasons blend together. Each switchback reveals something new. An untouched snowbank. Budding springtime greenery. Bright rays of sunshine, and menacing dark storm clouds that quickly pass over our heads, as if to remind us of how fast time can fly. When we reach the top, and there’s nothing left to climb, we take a moment to survey our surroundings. To the east, the puzzle pieces of cities along the Front Range are scattered before us. To the west, snowcapped mountain tops and a majestic Longs Peak regally stand tall. It’s quiet, and the wind stops breathing long enough to let us feel the complete silence of the mountain.
