Nature Walks – Sunshine and Snow

Colorado is known for both its sunshine and its snow, and quite often, we have both at the same time. Everyone knows about the Rocky Mountains and Colorado is famous the world over for its great skiing conditions. But most people don’t realize we are also known for our beautiful bright blue skies and lots of sunshine too. We average over 300+ days of sunshine per year, even with all the snow we get. This is exactly what I had on yesterday’s walk. The air was cool and crisp, but the skies were bright blue and the sun was shining brightly up above. It was a beautiful and perfect day.

There were lots of ducks and geese all about. The cool Canadians.

The Mallards.

Two Goldeneyes swimming side by side. The black and white one is a Common Goldeneye and the one with the brown head is a Barrow’s Goldeneye.

And the squirrel playing in the tree.

Make the most out of everyday and make everyday count.
