While the northern part of our state is experience epic, destructive rainfall. We in the southern parts of Colorado are having some rain too. We’ve been in a serious drought in the Southwest US, so it’s often a time for celebration when it rains in and around Durango. Many folks in Durango, herself included, bike commute to work, and it’s been challenging.
What this moisture means for our upcoming Fall Color display is hard to say, but there was a light dusting of snow on the mountains nearby. Below freezing temps are expected in the mountains as the sky clears during the night later this week. I’ll keep you informed. In the meantime, here’s an image of our locals favorite, Engineer Peak, October 2011.
