Fall is coming to the Front Range!
You'll notice that the snow doesn't come down very far. We get snow here in Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs but not a lot. For instance, I rarely shovel my parking lot more than once or twice a winter. Dusting occur regularly but it often warms up during the day enough to melt the snow and dry the pavement. That's what I like about winter in this beautiful part of our beautiful state - winter but not a lot of it.
bright golden yellow and are augmented by maroon bushes and shrubs (Burning Bush is one of them) and, of course the deep green of the evergreen Fir and Pine. We're probably a couple weeks away from the color peak but there are already some fine areas to drive, bike or hike through.
Fall is my favorite season, great daytime temps (whether your working or playing) and sleeping comfort like you can't believe. We can leave the furnace fans off and heat and cool the house simply by opening or closing a few windows. All of the area attractions are still open but the crowds are mostly gone as are the families with kids.
Come and see for yourself what a truly special place this is.
