Though I've been through this canyon hundreds of times, I am always moved by the beauty of God's hand in creating our glorious natural world to touch us with us love and lift our spirits.
Driving to Estes the day before the Wool Market opened gave me time to drink in Nature...and lots of rain! It was a downpour during the entire two days of my stay.
Flash flood warnings had been issued for several days because of the rain and the run-off of the melting snow. Pulling into the parking lot for breakfast, I heard the roaring of the river that runs through Estes Park.
Though the rain isn't apparent in these pix, it was coming down in buckets, like cats and dogs, like cats and dogs in buckets!
Of course, a welcoming committee greeted attendees as we turned onto Mall Road to drive to the fair grounds for the wool market. These elk appear disinterested, but I just know they were thrilled to see the yarnies arrive in their paradise.
