The Colorado Traveling Ducks Wake Up to Snow

We have three or four inches of new snow in our yard.   Yesterday, Zeb and Soapy Smith Duck convinced mom to drive around town taking photos of our new snow.   First we went to this lake.

The lake is frozen, but the ice is not deep enough to be safe for humans.   There is snow on the ice and everything looks so fresh and clean.   Looking to the west, the tops of the Rocky Mountains are concealed in clouds.

There is new snow on the foothills.   Foothills are the mountains, before they get tall enough to be the real Rocky Mountains.   There was no school yesterday so the snow on this playground is still fresh and untouched.

There are thousands of Canadian Geese that spend the winter in Colorado.   But in this yard, we saw this unusual pair.   We normally just see the darker geese, but here is a rarer white goose.

We thought they were beautiful, so mom just had to put two photos of them in here.

The trees look so pretty with their new snow coats.

Next we drove to our city park.

We love to see the fresh snow and the creek flowing through the park.

Some of the trees have already lost their new coats of snow.   The Colorado ski areas are receiving several feet of new snow, but in town, we are happy with a few inches.   We think it is pretty and we hope you like new snow also.

  1. No need to feel homebound. The snow was pretty. The roads were cleared by mid morning. Driving around early afternoon was fairly easy and traffic was light. Just love the fresh, clean look of new snow. Thanks for reading and commenting.
