On to Spring

Winter moved in surprisingly fast and cold. I continued to hike around city trails, but not up into the mountains. Avalanches were common, and claimed lives very close to the city, even on my favorite, Flattop Mountain. Icy roads kept me from even reaching the trailheads up above the foothills. So here are some pictures taken along roadways or on city trails throughout this long dark season. The small photos have large links if you click on them.
