It has been raining here in northern Colorado for the last four days. The rain, from my perspective, has been most welcome, because it has been dry for several weeks.
However, I have learned, as I am getting ready to post, that our heavy rains are causing flooding in parts of the Big Thompson Canyon and mandatory evaluations are being ordered. Flooding has also been reported in Loveland and in surrounding areas.
For friends that read by blog and camped this spring at Riverview Campground; it was evaluated this morning at 8:00am. This campground sits right next to the Big Thompson River.
Here is a link to the story written in the Reporter Herald, Loveland’s newspaper.
Almost obscured by other flowers and foliage, this little jewel invited me to taken her picture. I took this photo last week on September 5, 2013, during my jaunt up the Big Thompson Canyon. I hope you enjoy her beauty as much as I do.
I captured this spider’s web on September 5, 2013, as I walked around a nature park in the Big Thompson Canyon. The spider build it’s web up against a big boulder and was almost hidden among some foliage. I took the shot looking straight down.
