Moments of sun over the last couple of weeks have given enough warmth so that the apple trees are in full blossom.May 21, 2012 - Rain over the Ranch Buildings. The day started with just a short glance at the sun. Most of the day had shower off and on, keeping everything pretty wet.May 20, 2012 - Morning Sunrise Colors.

The farm along my running route looked great with the blue sky along the hills to the west.May 7, 2012 - Lake Destination. A great day for bike riding today.

This is what it looked like up the road as I rounded the corner above the ranch to head out on my run today. It was a combination of rain and snow pellets (graupel). Not a very pleasant run, but I did it!

Retired. Now a rancher and life observer. Speak softly and carry a camera with a big memory stick.
