SPRING-TIME WINTER STORM IN THE ROCKIES

The historic town of Manitou Springs hunkers down for a winter storm, which is not unusual during the spring in Colorado.

Even the mule deer know that its time to move to shelter.  This was taken this afternoon in the Garden of the Gods.

This little scrub jay fluffs up his feathers in an effort to keep warm.  Winds kicked up to 30 mph. today.

This is a spotted towhee.  In my 11 years here in the state of Colorado I have never seen the likes of this bird and was eager to get home and look it up.
