Snow
Buena Vista, CO

It has been snowing all day here in the small mountain town of Buena Vista, Colorado!

I drove around the neighborhood to capture any snow pictures I could.
Colorado Snow Looking west. There would be large mountains behind that sign if there had been any visibility at all out there! ;)
Game Trail Community The snowy entrance to the Game Trail residential community.
35 degrees The Colorado East Bank & Trust sign said it was 35 outside.
Buena Vista, CO I put some gas in my vehicle and before paying, I snapped this shot of the snowfall in town.

I then ventured up Chaffee County Road 306 ("Cottonwood Pass Road") where the snow came down even harder west of Buena Vista.

Buena Vista, CO Drive-In I think it's safe to say the Comanche Drive-In Theater will not be showing a movie today. ;)
San Isabel National Forest Honestly, because visibility was fairly poor, I was looking for practically any kind of object in the foreground that would give the viewer an idea of how hard the snowing was falling.

I spotted young bighorn sheep on the side of the highway. Neat!

You can see my recent photos of these fellows here: Bighorn Sheep.

Steve Using the timer, I captured one shot of me standing on the road. My tire tracks indicate I was a rare motorist to head up this way. ;)
