FOUNTAIN, COLORADO

Fountain, Colorado is a small, quiet, laid back town south of Colorado Springs.  It looks pretty much like any other small town, USA, which is probably why it earned the distinction of being labeled The Millenium City of America by the New York Times for the year 2000, and then the honor of being one of the cities selected as All American Cities for 2002.  This is the new City Hall.

What would a town named Fountain be without a fountain?  The children play in this fountain in front of the city hall during the summer months. The winter cover was just removed this week, just in time for last night's snow.  Most of the snow had melted by noon.

Nothing really significant about this picture except that yes, those are snow clouds, and yes, that is snow on the mountain, and yes, this is April 29th!  Spring always comes a little later at this attitude.

Nice pics, Dorn. Feels like I want to sit on one of those benches and gaze up at that ridge.

How cool that Fountain has a fountain for play!  My kind of town!  What precious memories those children will have later in life.  Lisa
