It Doesn’t Get any Greener at the Ranch

If you live in Colorado, you know we had a rather dry winter… but then along came April.

Average precipitation for Northern Colorado in April is about two inches, but this past April brought more than four inches of water to the region, and with the rain, greener pastures.

Last night brought a steady rain that continued into early afternoon. The result of all this spring, Colorado precipitation is a delightfully green, and wet, landscape.

I hope you enjoy these fresh photos taken around the ranch this afternoon—no need to get green with envy—we’re happy to share the views! If you think you know where some of the ‘less obvious’ shots were taken, post your answers below.
