This is the view off our back deck taken a couple years ago after we woke up to freezing fog. It’s a phenomenon I’ve never experienced prior to moving to Colorado but it’s when super chilled fog rolls in and clings to the tree on the side in which the direction the fog came in (you can see white on one side, green on the other). It’s quite beautiful to see and doesn’t happen to often, but I always like seeing it; feels like I’m privy to a little weather secret!
I have a fascination with trains and always love watching them go by. My aunt and uncle had their yard backed up to train tracks and I loved staying over and watching the train make daily passes by. Now that we live out West, I always relish the opportunity to take train rides through the big country and rocky mountains. This particular steam locomative was the Durango & Silverton railroad which is an all day ride up and down the mountain from warm, sunny Durango to the cold mining town of Silverton high up in the mountains. It’s a steep trek up but a beautiful ride and it was a great way to spend a day.
It’s a really windy day today in Colorado so I thought to share this photo I took years ago near Mount Evans where it was windy at the peaks. Stay warm!
