Pikes...Peeking

Spring has hit the Rockies! The last few days have been in the high 70's and '80's -- finally! Cookout weather! And, my front flower garden is alive and purple, with lilacs and the last of the gorgeous tulips.

I thought I'd better go ahead and post these photos of Pikes Peak. The first photo isn't great quality as I took it with my phone, just to capture how the mountain was almost invisible with the mist in front of it, 'though it was a sunny, pretty day where I was below.

The second photo gives you a good view of how it looked with snow still on it just a few days ago. I think this is the last snow-capped view, because the snow is quickly melting away and will surely be gone after the heat we have had for the last few days!
